This chapter looks at the first of the first crusade narratives, the Mainz Anonymous. It is a tightly organized and carefully conceptualized narrative, which was written by a single author. The discussion reveals this tight organization and careful conceptualization of the Mainz Anonymous and argues for unitary authorship. It also identifies the different objectives of the author. A description of the Mainz Anonymous, including the kind of narrative used and the events that it presents, is provided in this chapter. άkeda imagery is introduced in the final section of the chapter.
