The leper king and his heirs : Baldwin IV and the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem by Bernard Hamilton( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The reign of King Baldwin IV of Jerusalem (1174-85) has traditionally been seen as a period of decline when, because of the king's illness, power came to be held by unsuitable men who made the wrong policy decisions. Notably, they ignored the advice of Raymond of Tripoli and attacked Saladin, who was prepared to keep peace with the Franks while uniting the Islamic near east under his rule. This book challenges that view, arguing that peace with Saladin was not a viable option for the Franks; that the young king, despite suffering from lepromatous leprosy (the most deadly form of the disease) was an excellent battle leader who strove with some success to frustrate Saladin's imperial ambitions; that Baldwin had to remain king in order to hold factions in check; but that the society over which he presided was, contrary to what is often said, vigorous and self-confident."--Jacket

The Christian world of the Middle Ages by Bernard Hamilton( Book )

21 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and German and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the way in which Christianity spread throughout the known world in the Middle Ages and also explores the great variety of forms which it took. It spans the centuries from A.D. 312, when Constantine the Great ended the persecution of the Church, to 1500, when European overseas expansion inaugurated a period of Western religious dominance. In the medieval centuries Christianity spread throughout Western Europe and was taken by the Vikings to Iceland and Greenland and even perhaps the north American mainland. From the Holy City of Byzantium, Orthodox Christianity spread northwards into Bulgaria, Serbia and Russia. In North Africa there were large Christian communities living under Muslim rule, while in the Sudan and Ethiopia there were independent Christian kingdoms. The Christians of South India claimed to have been converted by the Apostle Thomas, while Christians from Persia evangelized nomadic tribes in central Asia living along the silk road leading to China."--Publisher's description
