During the First Crusade launched in 1095, thousands of Europeans fought to liberate Jerusalem from the Seljuk Turks. By 1099, they had succeeded, and in the decades that followed, Franks settled in the newly conquered territory, creating a rich intellectual and cultural life. They wrote poetry and histories of their experiences, erected churches and castles, and commissioned illuminated manuscripts, frescoes, sculpture, and more. The majority of the crusaders and settlers were French, so the art and culture of France were of abiding importance to them. But the settlers did not merely transfer French artistic forms to the Levant; they also incorporated ideas and images from Byzantine and Islamic neighbors.
In France and the Holy Land, Daniel H. Weiss and Lisa Mahoney bring together leading scholars from a variety of disciplines to shed light on the many aspects of this Frankish crusader culture. The authors examine the art, poetry, and architecture of crusader Paris, look at the imprint the Frankish settlers left on the Levant, and explore cultural exchange between the Franks and both Byzantines and Muslims.
Although the crusaders' struggle to hold the occupied lands was ultimately futile, their stay in the Levant produced a unique and fascinating intellectual and cultural flowering that was neither Western nor Middle Eastern, but a distinctive melange of both. These thoughtful, provocative essays from prominent medievalists profoundly broaden and deepen our understanding of this significant historical period.

Buchbeschreibung JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY PRESS, United States, 2004. Hardback. Buchzustand: New. New.. 230 x 157 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Few periods in history have captured the public imagination than the Crusades. The Crusaders cut a rakish, Romantic image, as chivalrous knights go off to liberate the Holy Land, to make the world a safer place for Christian pilgrims. But who, really, were the Crusaders? In this exciting, interdisciplinary volume, many aspects of Frankish Crusader culture are explored by some of the leading researchers. Here we examine the art, poetry, and architecture of Crusader Paris; look at the imprint the Frankish knights left on the Levant, and upon the city of Acre in particular. The manuscript also examines cultural exchange, not only with those from Byzantium, but also with Muslims. This book presents thoughtful, provocative essays from leading medievalists that will profoundly influence our understanding of the Crsuades and Crusader culture.
