The Banquet of the Pheasant was a response to the Fall of Constantinople, and it was staged to enlist support for the coming crusade. Two splendid tributes to heroic crusaders from the dukes family tree, commissioned in the 1450s, provide an opportunity to bring these elements of his reputation-bibliophile and would-be crusader--under the same lens. Our perception of the Charlemagne Chronicle in Brussels (BR, MS 9066-68) and the Jerusalem Chronicle in Vienna (ONB, Cod.

2533) is enhanced when we consider other examples of crusade literature and remember the perennial goal of recovering Jerusalem. This study of the visual and literary projects that supported Philips efforts to launch a crusade, long after the days of the classic crusades, sets these manuscripts in the context of his courts interest in history writing and updated historical romances, and against the background of the French crusading tradition and the Burgundian incarnation that succeeded it.

Elizabeth J. Moodey is Assistant Professor at the Vanderbilt University. She teaches the history of illuminated manuscripts, the culture of the Burgundian court, and the art of medieval Europe, with an emphasis on materials and technique and questions of patronage.
