The Conquest of Jerusalem and the Third Crusade : Sources in Translation, Paperback / softback Book

The Conquest of Jerusalem and the Third Crusade : Sources in Translation Paperback / softback

Part of the Crusade Texts in Translation series

Paperback / softback

Description

This is a complete collection in modern English of the key texts describing Saladin's conquest of Jerusalem in October 1187 and the Third Crusade, which was Christendom's response to the catastrophe. The largest and most important text in the book is a translation of the fullest version of the Old French Continuation of William Tyre for the years 1184-97.

This key medieval narrative poses problems for the historian in that it achieved its present form in the 1240s, though it clearly incorporates much earlier material. Professor Edbury's authoritative introduction, notes and maps help interpretation of this and other contemporary texts which are included in this volume, making it an invaluable resource for teachers and students of the crusades.
