Abstract

Philippe de Mezieres's Anglo-French Crusading Order and BnF £ fro 2456 hilippe de Mezieres is a central figure in the political and intellectual history of the fourteenth-century Mediterranean world. His zeal for holy war against militant Islam shaped everything in a long professional career. He was Chancellor of Cyprus from 1358 to 1369, playing an essential role in crusade-related diplomacy with the greatest secular and ecclesiastical leaders of his time. Upon returning to his native France in the early 1370s, he established himself as an indispensable royal counselor in Paris and became the most powerful advocate of the 1396 truce between England and France that facilitated a multinational Christian expedition against the Turks in eastern Europe. Philippe's prolific writings, along with his passionate campaigning for a crusade led by his international religious-military society, the Order of the Passion of Jesus Christ, earned him friends and followers from east to wese and even suggest his participation in a late-fourteenth-century network of European literary exchange (Hanly). This cluster's emphasis on international cultural and political diffusion across borders makes him a natural choice. In this essay, I will focus on the testimony gleaned from a particular manuscript - Paris, BnF £
