Crusading fervor gripped Europe for more than 200
years, creating one of the most extraordinary episodes in
world history. But were the Crusades the first steps in
European colonialism, an attempt at ethnic cleansing, a
manifestation of religious zealÔÇöor all three?
Bringing together issues of colonialism, cultural exchange,
and economic exploitation, scholar Christopher Tyerman
challenges our assumptions about the Crusades and
encourages us to re - evaluate the relationship between
past and present.
