Raúl Glaber da un espacio importante al tema del engaño en sus Historias. Se trata de un topos literario muy importante recurrente para aclarar a los lectores los peligros del pecado. Son numerosos los episodios narrados por Raúl Glaber que dan cuenta de engaños, subterfugios y mentiras. Veremos que sirvieron como advertencias, útiles herramientas narrativas, en última instancia, una "saludable oportunidad de corregir" y escapar del pecado que, como declara Raúl Glaber en algunos escritos, deterioró la sociedad a principios del siglo XI.
