Product Overview

Lackling such questions as whether medicinal and architectural innovations came to Europe as a direct result of the crusades, and why and how peace treaties and intermarriages were formed between the different cultures, a distinguished group of contributors reveals how the Iloly Wars led on the one hand to a reinforcement of the beliefs and identities of each side, but on the other to a growing level of cultural exchange and interaction. This volume breaks new ground in exploring not only the conflict between the Christian and the Muslim worlds, but the impact of this conflict on the cultural evolution of European and Near Eastern thought and practices. Utilising the latest scholarship and original studies of the sources, this survey sheds new light on the cultural realities of East - West relations and marks a new departure for studies of the crusades.

Contributors include Lean Ni Chleirigh, Susan B. Edgington, John France, Yehoshua Frenkel, Yvonne Friedman. Bernard Hamilton, Natasha Hodgson, Sini Kangas, Jurgen Kruger, Alan V. Murray Chris Wright.
