Themes in Crusade History

Themes in Crusade History

This course will move thematically through a broad range of topics to explore the crusades’ place in the history of the medieval world, and to also consider the long and contentious history of the crusades and their meaning in the world today. Topics will include travel, trade, gender and sexuality, warfare, art and architecture, and inter-religious interaction and conflict. Students interested in aspects of medieval Europe, Middle Eastern history, and Mediterranean studies will especially benefit from the material covered in this course. Although not required, it is recommended that students also take Dr. Greenfield’s The Origins of Crusading.
