Crusades Studies Forum
in attending the Public Lectures on February 17, 18, and 19?
continue to bring the subject of the Crusades to a place of prominence
and importance. This surge of interest comes on the heels of a
renaissance in Crusade scholarship that has greatly expanded our
understanding of all aspects of the movement. While a western
phenomenon, the Crusades also represented an interactive episode
in which diverse cultures - western Christian, eastern Christian,
Jewish, and Muslim, among others - came into contact, conflict,
and collaboration. The International Symposium on Crusade Studies
is organized quadrennially by the Crusades
Studies Forum at Saint Louis University to explore and inquire
into these questions and dynamics. The Symposium provides a venue
for scholars to approach the Crusades from many different perspectives,
to present the fruits of new research, and to assess the current
state of the field.
