  • Crusading as an Act of Vengeance, 1095?1216by Susanna A. Throop

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Only recently have historians of the crusades begun to seriously investigate the presence of the idea of crusading as an act of vengeance, despite its frequent appearance in crusading sources.

    In medieval society and culture, memory occupied a unique position. It was central to intellectual life and the medieval understanding of the human mind.

    Down swept the Vikings from the frigid North. Across the English coastlands and countryside they raided, torched, murdered, and destroyed all in their path. Then came an unlikely hero.

    Our imagination reveals our experience of ourselves and our world.

When such a mental image inspires... more...
