Crusading Europe: Essays in Honour of Christopher Tyerman

Abstract : A volume of essays exploring the European motivations, practicalities, and legacies of the crusades with essays by leading medieval historians evaluating and extending the life-long work of Christopher Tyerman, who has emphasized the study of the influence of crusading on all aspects of life in medieval and early modern Europe. The image of the crusades often connotes exoticism and foreign adventuring. However, the underlying motivations, daily practicalities, and lasting impact of the crusades on their European birthplace are equally important. How did European anxieties, prejudices, and priorities propel the crusading movement? How did crusaders understand and manage the particularly European geographical, legal, and financial dimensions of their campaigns? How did the crusades mark medieval European architecture, spirituality, and literature? This volume not only engages these provocative questions but also serves as a monument to the career of Christopher Tyerman, who has done so much to integrate European and global crusading history. The collection of essays gathered here by leading crusade historians, Tyerman’s friends and former students, furthers study of the crusades within their European context, highlighting intriguing new directions for teaching and researching the crusades and their impact.
