Saint Louis University

The Crusades Studies Forum at Saint Louis University is an international venue for the presentation of current research, the discussion of recent scholarship, and the exploration of new directions in topics relating to the Crusades. Participants include those local to the Saint Louis region as well as distinguished scholars from across the globe. All are welcome to attend and participate in the forum.

The Crusades Studies Forum was originally founded by a group of graduate students in the Department of History at Saint Louis University. The graduate program continues to be a leader in the field of Crusade Studies. Those interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in the history of the Crusades should visit the program website for more information.

In preparation for those meetings in which articles are under discussion copies are available one week prior in the Saint Louis University Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies Office, Humanities Building 140.
