    Abstract:
    This article attempts to revisit Dana Carleton Munro's seminal article on the Clermont address, in light of the credibility of eye/earwitness accounts, the earliest of which was composed fully five years after the actual event, and after the initial victory of what would become the First Crusade. The article also considers how Pope Urban II's Clermont address functioned as an interpellation of a new style of masculinity via the theme of physical and spiritual patrimony.
