This chapter examines crusader departure songs in Middle High German and Old Occitan and how they use conventions concerning the heart, the voice of crusading intention, and pilgrimage movement. In the Minnesang tradition, poets such as Friedrich von Hausen, Hartmann von Aue, and Albrecht von Johansdorf produce a courtly crusade idiom through bodily fragmentation, the intervention of the female voice, and dramatizing the transformation of the will. Troubadours such as Jaufre Rudel and Peire Vidal find ways to record a vexed movement of pilgrimage that records the process of restraining and reshaping desire. They commemorate the process of their turn from earthly love through material objects, such as crystals and ensigns.

Keywords:   Minnesänger, troubadours, pilgrimage, Friedrich von Hausen, Hartmann von Aue, Albrecht von Johansdorf, Peire Vidal, Jaufre Rudel, movement, objects, departure
