The Crusades (1095–1291)
Schildgen uses poor grammar and syntax to make very dubious and oversimplified claims. The result is nothing much more than an argument that Boccaccio and Chaucer think storytelling is a good thing. As is often the case with such collections, this is uneven. Then again, so too are the Decameron and the Canterbury Tales: perhaps, then, this very divergence of approaches and quality can be seen as a tribute to a topic that will retain our interest so long as w e enjoy storytelling. The 15 studies in this collection began as presentations at a Dumbarton Oaks symposium.

Introduction: Definition and Scope
Crusades , military expeditions, beginning in the late 11th century , that were organized by western European Christians in response to centuries of Muslim wars of expansion. Their objectives were to check the spread of Islam , to retake control of the Holy Land in the eastern Mediterranean , to conquer pagan areas, and to recapture formerly Christian territories; they were seen by many of their participants as a means of redemption and expiation for sins. Between , when the First Crusade was launched, and , when the Latin Christians were finally expelled from their kingdom in Syria , there were numerous expeditions to the Holy Land, to Spain , and even to the Baltic ; the Crusades continued for several centuries after Crusading declined rapidly during the 16th century with the advent of the Protestant Reformation and the decline of papal authority.
Byzantine and Modern Greek Perceptions of the Crusades
On 13 April the western or Latin armies participating in the Fourth Crusade conquered Constantinople, the capital of Byzantium. The approaching th anniversary of that event has generated renewed interest in the background, context and impact of that crusade, expressed in several new studies and in conferences. The initial goal of the Fourth Crusade was the re-establishment of Christian rule over Jerusalem, lost to Sultan Saladin of Egypt in Instead, it ended with the capture of the capital of a Christian state that had withstood all previous sieges and assaults. The deviation of the crusade has been the subject of an ongoing and intense debate for the last years or so. The same arguments have been used time and again, yet in the absence of new evidence, no convincing new explanations have been offered. Speculation has centred on a conspiracy theory and a search for those guilty of having masterminded the deviation.
Northern Crusades — The Crusades were a series of religious wars initiated, supported, and sometimes directed by the Latin Church in the medieval period. The term refers especially to the Eastern Mediterranean campaigns in the period between and that had the objective of conquering the Holy Land from Islamic rule.

The Crusades from the Perspective of Byzantium and the Muslim World
Palgrave Advances in the Crusades pp Cite as. The crusades were a startling and spectacular phenomenon which exerted a powerful influence on European development over a period of many centuries. Crusading was a many-faceted experience and much recent writing has been devoted to explaining how the remarkable notion of salvation by slaughter arose and to understanding the mentalities which gave rise to it. This may currently be the dominant theme in writing about the crusades, but it is most certainly not the only one. Unable to display preview. Download preview PDF.
