Analyzes the Crusades from European and Arabic viewpoints
This is the third in a series of four volumes that are intended to present a complete Corpus of all the church buildings, of both the Western and the Oriental rites, built, rebuilt or simply in use in the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem between the capture of Jerusalem by the First Crusade in 1099 and the loss of Acre in 1291. This volume deals exclusively with Jerusalem, the capital of the Kingdom from 1099 to 1187, leaving the churches of Acre and Tyre to be covered in the fourth and final volume. The Corpus will be an indispensable work of reference to all those concerned with the medieval topography and archaeology of the Holy Land, with the history of the church in the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem, with medieval pilgrimage to the Holy Places, and with the art and architecture of the Latin East.
Runciman examines the revival of the Frankish kingdom at the time of the Third Crusade until its collapse a century later. The various themes of the book include: Christiandom, the replacement of the cultured Ayubites by the less sympathetic Mameluks as leader of the Muslem world, and the coming of the Mongols. He includes a chapter on architecture and the arts, and an epilogue on the last manifestations of the Crusading spirit.
A comprehensive, collaborative account of the political, religious, military, and social causes, events, organizers and leaders, achievements, and consequences of the Christian Crusades and concurrent enterprises, through the fifteenth century
How accurate are President Obama's "history lessons" on Islam and the Crusades? Were the Crusaders mean and cruel "expansionists" looking for easy money and material gain, invading the peace loving Muslim communities of the Middle East? Or did they go over their heads in debt to respond to a cry for help from people in a situation much like you see today? Before you apologize to a Muslim for the Crusades, or fall in love with a Russel Crowe film about the Crusades, read this book. Volume three in the Myths of Modern Academia series focusing on the crusades. What motivated the crusaders? Was Islamic culture more advanced than Medieval Europe? Were the crusaders barbaric raiders into the lands of the peaceful and tolerant Muslims? How glorious was Saladin? Were the Arabs more chivalrous? Is memory of the crusades a driving force behind modern Muslim aggression and unrest? All these and more are examined in this volume of Ten Myths.
