The Epistola ad Paschalem II papam is the only preserved letter written in the context of the expedition led by prince Bohemond of Antioch against the Byzantine emperor Alexios I Komnenos in 1107 – 1108. This document, discovered and subsequently published in 1935 by Walther Holtzmann, is rightly considered the most important evidence of the increasing anti-Byzantine propaganda after the First Crusade. In the present paper, the authors focus on the textual tradition of this letter and the broader context and circumstances that led to its emergence. The second part of the paper consists of a comprehensive analysis of selected anti-Byzantine motives used in the letter and their subsequent comparison with other contemporary Latin reports containing anti-Byzantine propaganda.
