This chapter explores the issue on the relationship of the narratives of 1096 and their conceptualization of God, humanity, and history to classical Jewish tradition. The discussion focuses on a small number of classical narratives, which are those that look at the earlier hero figures that are consistently cited in the First Crusade narratives. This chapter also includes a comparison of the narratives and the classical versions of these hero figures and their similarities and differences in substance and style.

Keywords: relationship; narratives of 1096; God; humanity; history; classical Jewish tradition; classical narratives; hero figures
