The Crusades by Zoé Oldenbourg( Book )

88 editions published between 1965 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 3,126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was a great adventure, motivated by more than simply religion or pure aggression: the Crusades resulted from an emotional climate that led people from all walks of life to leave their homes and follow the unattainable ideal of a heavenly Jerusalem here on Earth. A prize-winning author paints a portrait of the whole of feudal society, evoking its exceptional vitality and the ingenuity of the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem--one of the more sophisticated achievements of the Middle Ages--and personalities such as Tancred, Peter the Hermit, Richard the Lionhearted, and Saladin
Catherine the Great by Zoé Oldenbourg( Book )

This picture of the Russian ruler as a woman shows that Catherine was engulfed in such intrigue and conflict that she had to rule or to perish. The eventual murder of her husband, her dizzying succession of lovers were only the outward scandalous appurtenances of a court and an era that were still ... brutal and primitive

Massacre at Montségur; a history of the Albigensian Crusade by Zoé Oldenbourg( Book )

38 editions published between 1959 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 1,336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, the Cathar religious cult spread like an epidemic through the entire Mediterranean world, penetrating all classes, dividing families, alarming the Roman Church, and inspiring thousands to die at the stake. Zoe Oldenbourg places this strange heresy in its historical setting, from its obscure origins in Eastern Europe to the final and bloody suppression of the French Cathars, or Albigensians, at the fortress of Montségur. Beginning with the heretical doctrine itself, Oldenbourg traces its ramifications among Manichaeans, Paulicians, and Cathars (or "pure ones"), extending through Asia Minor, the Balkans, and Italy, finally to put down firm roots in the South of France, where Raymond, Count of Toulouse, still kept Languedoc independent of either Spain or France. The power politics of the popes, sovereigns, and warrior knights who were involved in destroying the Albigensians emerge clearly and objectively in Oldenbourg's narrative.--From publisher description

The crusades by Zoé Oldenbourg( )

7 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Crusades clarifies much that was obscure about this enigmatic movement.
