Example text

11 ‘Propaganda’ and ‘ideology’ are of course anachronistic terms, and it is important to clarify what is meant when using them in a twelfth-century context. If we take ‘propaganda’ to mean deliberate falsification for persuasive ends, it is a peculiarly inappropriate term to apply to Benoît, for Benoît is a writer who follows his source material with almost slavish precision, to the extent that it is possible to trace exactly when he switches from one Latin history to another. Whether he is always discriminating in his choice of source is another matter; but his habit of opting for the oldest source available suggests that he has a clear strategy and a clear vision of his task as a historian, and one that is entirely in keeping with that of his contemporaries.
