  • Abstract: The contribution deals with two episodes of cannibalism in the Italian vulgarization of the Estoire d’Eracles (Florence, Laurentian Library, Plut. LXI.45): the barbecue feast of Turkish spies in Bohemond’s campsite; the lynching of Andronikos I Komnenos devoured by Constantinople’s women. Both events are examples of sensational punishment and revenge: in the first episode Crusaders aim to discourage the enemy, in the second one the victims seek to purify themselves from the tyrant’s sins.
