    Hilarious Terrifying Full of unlikely incidents and anti heroes.Anyone who enjoys the brutalia of Cormac McCarthy must eventually approach the rude awe filled medieval mind.Why the Crusade The Peace of God, begun by a pointlessly evil hunt of the Jews in Mainz and Cologne, fueled by a distrust of everything Greek, ending in the desecration of the holiest Temple with blood, blood up the ankles of the chroniclers who themselves could not believe their eyes as the defenseless leaped from the high r [...]

    This is a great resource for studying the Crusades, with excerpts from Christians, Muslims and Jews who lived through it.My personal favorite was reading about the Christians who repelled Kerbogha s army at Antioch From than one Christian source, you read about how Jesus literally swept down with an army to help them, which frightened the far superior Muslim force and they took flight A miracle victory for a smaller, starving army of Christians From the Muslim side, you read about how the army [...]

    This is a collection of nearly one hundred historical documents written by medieval sources, including chronicles, church letters, proclamations, and letters from the Crusaders themselves It is an invaluable resource for anyone investigating this time period, or wanting to explore the medieval European mind It is good to remember, however, that anyone who could write in those days generally came from the upper classes and much of the content is, of course, heavily biased.

    A great resource for people approaching the history of the crusades All of the texts inside are brief, and sometimes could do with some context, but it offers an interesting, rarely seen first hand account of life in the crusades.
