Summary
"Puts us on the ground in the Mediterranean world of 1050-1200, [experiencing] the sights and sounds of the region just as enlightened Islamic empires and primitive Christendom began to contest it. We learn about the siege tactics, theological disputes, and poetry of this enthralling time. And we see that people of different faiths coexisted far more frequently than we are commonly told"--
Summary
In this fresh and vivid history of the Mediterranean region during the Middle Ages, author Brian Catlos depicts the relationships among Muslims and Christians as complex and subtle, arguing that the Crusades were motivated as much by economics and politics as by religion. Showing that accounts of certain heroes (such as el Cid) portrayed them as either Muslim or Christian, depending on who wrote the account, he also highlights internal violence within Christian and Muslim factions. Moreover, collaboration among Christians, Jews, and Muslims was common. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
