TYPE: Lecture,Q&A
CATEGORY: HISTORY
DESCRIPTION:

The course begins with a brief discussion of the European and Middle East context in the late 11th century, followed by a presentation of the first Crusade, including the capture of Jerusalem and the reaction of the Muslims. Subsequent weeks will cover the period of the Kingdom of Jerusalem, the establishment of the military orders, the unification of the Muslims under Saladin, and subsequent Crusades, including the aborted Crusade of Richard and Phillip, Kings of England and France, respectively. Finally, we spend some time examining the fate of the military orders and reflecting on the legacy of the Crusades because the effects of the Crusades linger in the world today and affect the thinking of both Islam and the West.
