The author of the Historia rerum in partibus transmarinis gestarum, William archbishop of Tyre, focuses his treatment around political, war and diplomatic events, but, in a few tangential instances, reports religious elements. Prominent among these are references to ceremonies in the kingdom of Jerusalem, which I will study in this article. After outlining their general characteristics, I will conduct an investigation on three different levels: the repetition of a formular expression, the contextualisation of certain episodes of devotion, and the ritual of the burial of rulers.
