The kingdom of Cyprus and the Crusades, 1191-1374 by P. W Edbury( Book )

26 editions published between 1991 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The island of Cyprus was conquered from its Byzantine ruler by Richard I of England in 1191 during the Third Crusade, and remained under western rule until the Ottoman conquest of 1570-1. From the 1190s until the 1470s the island was a kingdom governed by the members of the Lusignan family. The Lusignans, who hailed from Poitou in western France, imposed a new European landowning class and a Catholic ecclesiastical hierarchy upon the indigenous Greek population. Nevertheless, their regime provided long periods of political stability and, until the late fourteenth century, a considerable period of prosperity. In the thirteenth century the island was closely linked to the Latin states in Syria and the Holy Land by political, social and economic ties and, with the fall of the last Christian strongholds to the Muslims in 1291, it became the most easterly outpost of Latin Christendom in the Mediterranean." "This new study, which is based on original research, traces the fortunes of Cyprus under its royal dynasty and its role in the crusades and in the confrontation of Christian and Muslim in the Near East until the 1370s when it was severely weakened in a war with Genoa. It is both a major contribution to the history of the crusades in the Levant and the only scholarly study of medieval Cyprus currently available. Book jacket."--Jacket
William of Tyre, historian of the Latin East by P. W Edbury( Book )

22 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in English and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William, archbishop of Tyre from 1175 to c.1184, was a churchman, royal servant and scholar who lived in the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem. Born in Jerusalem around 1130, he studied in western Europe for almost twenty years until 1165, when he returned to the East to begin his career in public life. He left to posterity a monumental history in which he described the events of the First Crusade (1095–9) and recorded the fortunes of the western rulers of the states subsequently founded in Syria and the Holy Land down to his own day. The value of his work as an example of twelfth-century historiography and as a source of information for the events described has long been recognized. In this study the authors consider William as a public figure and historian, and examine the influences which bore upon his writing and the way in which he fashioned his material. They then go on to examine what he had to say about certain topics - the monarchy in Jerusalem, the Church, the papacy, the Byzantine empire and the Crusade - and why he wrote as he did
John of Ibelin and the Kingdom of Jerusalem by P. W Edbury( )

10 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John of Ibelin, Count of Jaffa and Ascalon (d. 1266), was one of the foremost politicians in the kingdom of Jerusalem in the mid-thirteenth century; his family was prominent in the Latin East and was linked by ties of marriage to the royal dynasties of both Jerusalem and Cyprus. John's career and his ancestors' rise to prominence are the subject of the first half of this book. The second concentrates on John's most lasting achievement, his treatise on the pleading, procedures, and customs of the High Court of the kingdom of Jerusalem, which includes at the end descriptions of the ecclesiastical hierarchy, the juridical structure, and the military capacity of the kingdom. It has long been recognised that these chapters provide invaluable insights into the kingdom's institutions, government and resources, and they are here re-edited from the best surviving manuscripts and discussed in detail"--Provided by publisher

Guillaume de Machaut : the capture of Alexandria by Guillaume( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Guillaume de Machaut's narrative poem describing the reign of King Peter I of Cyprus (1359-69) and the Alexandria campaign of 1365 is a major source for this episode in the history of the crusades in the fourteenth century. It is also the earliest full-scale account of Peter's career to have survived. It is here translated for the first time into English, and is followed by some other texts which relate to Peter's reign." "Guillaume de Machaut's Capture of Alexandria (La Prise d'Alixandre) will be of interest both to students of the crusades and to students of French literary culture in the fourteenth century."--Jacket
Kingdoms of the Crusaders : from Jerusalem to Cyprus by P. W Edbury( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume brings together a series of papers spanning a quarter of a century of research into the history and institutions of the Latin East from the late 12th century to the end of the 14th. The crusaders established two kingdoms in the Levant. Christmas Day 1100 saw the coronation of the first king of Jerusalem in the aftermath of the First Crusade. The Lusignans came to power in Cyprus in 1192 as the Third Crusade was drawing to its close, and they ruled there as kings from 1197 until the 1470s. How these regimes fared in the face of external enemies and internal pressures and how the westerners settled in the East structured their legal, governmental and social affairs are the twin themes of this collection."--
The military orders( Book )

in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Military Orders first became central to European life in the 1130s and, despite the suppression of the Templars in 1312, remained so until Napoleon seized Malta from the Hospitallers in 1798. Even then, the spirit had not died, for hospitaller organisations based upon the original foundations were revived in the nineteenth century and many continue to perform important social functions today. The attraction of this subject was reflected in the conference on military orders held at St John's, Clerkenwell, in September 1992, which drew scholars from twenty countries; a large selection of their papers is published here. Themes as diverse as the administration of the Hospitaller estates in Essex; the Templar castles on the pilgrimage route to the Jordan; the treatment of prisoners of war by the Teutonic Order; and the perception of the military orders in Victorian England, are among the wide variety of studies contained in the forty-one papers in this volume. Yet, at the same time, the subject has an underlying unity, making it a field for fruitful co-operation between historians, archaeologists and art historians, the full potential of which is just beginning to be explored."--BOOK JACKET
