Coggeshalle, Ralph De
Coggeshalle, Ralph De a learned English Cistercian and historian, is chiefly known by his Chronicle of the Holy Land, which is valuable because he was an eye- witness of the facts related. He was at Jerusalem, and was wounded there during the siege of that city by Saladin. He died about 1228. See Chalmers, Biog. Dict. s.v.; Allibone, Dict. of Brit. and Amer. Authors, s.v.
