This tenso, which represents, as Crescini says (op. cit. p. 461), ‘il contrasto fra la religione e l’amore, fra il servizio di Cristo nelle asprezze cimentose della crociata e il servizio della dama ne’ sollazzi tranquilli della vita cortigiana’, was composed, according to De Bartholomaeis (loc. cit.), in the year 1190. See also Crescini, op. cit. p. 471 (1188-9); Selbach, Das Streitgedicht, p. 39; Jeanroy, ‘La Tenson Provençale’, and also Introduction, p. 8.
The first two stanzas of this poem have served as model to Thibaut IV of Champagne in his poem Kant Amors vit ke je li aloignoie (ed. Soc. Anc. Textes Fr., p. 246).

14. ochaizonar alcu de = ‘to accuse someone of’. It is an expression of legal origin; see Bertoni, ‘Riflessi di costumanze giuridiche nell’ antica poesia de Provenza’, in Poesie, leggende, costumanze del medio evo, pp. 160 ff. (previously appeared in Arch. Rom. I (1917), pp. 4 ff.), and Pellegrini in Arch. Rom. XVI (1932), pp. 439 ff.
