Crusades by Terry Jones( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 909 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nine hundred years ago Christian Europe was seized by a fever that changed the world. Inspired by a Pope who offered rewards on earth and a certain place in paradise thereafter, tens of thousands of men, women and children - knights and peasants, rich and poor, old and young - set out for the Holy Land to recapture the Holy City, Jerusalem, and save their fellow Christians from persecution by the Infidel. Crusades, and the television series which this book accompanies, tell the dramatic story of these events, and the reality behind the myths. This story of battles and betrayals, drama and intrigue, is told with wit and clarity, and is magnificently illustrated throughout in color. The authors show how the Europeans used the morality of the Crusades to justify the conquest and destruction of any society which stood in their way, sowing the seeds of fear, suspicion and even hatred in the Arab world - a legacy which remains to this day

Who murdered Chaucer? : a medieval mystery by Terry Jones( Book )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this work of historical speculation Terry Jones and a team of international scholars investigate the mystery surrounding the death of Geoffrey Chaucer over 600 years ago. An important public figure, a diplomat and the brother-in-law to John of Gaunt - one of the most powerful men in the kingdom - Chaucer was celebrated as his country's finest living poet, rhetorician and scholar: the pre-eminent intellectual superstar of his time. We have a great deal of information about his life. And yet nothing at all is known of his death." "In 1400 his name simply disappears from the record. We don't know how he died, where or when; there is no official confirmation of his death and no chronicle mentions it; no notice of his funeral or burial. He left no will and there's nothing to tell us what happened to his estate. He didn't even leave any manuscripts. How could this be?" "What if he was murdered? What if he and his writings had become politically inconvenient in the seismic social shift that occurred with the overthrow of the liberal Richard II by the reactionary, oppressive regime of Henry IV? Would the dogs of suppression, unleashed by the ruthlessly ambitious Archbishop Arundel, have been snapping at the heels of a dangerous poet?" "This daring and controversial hypothesis is the introduction to a remarkable reading of Chaucer's writings as evidence that might be held against him, interwoven with a brilliant portrait of one of the most turbulent periods in English history, its politics and its personalities. Combining revelatory scholarship with the flair for narrative that marks all Terry Jones' work, the result is an absorbing synthesis of history and literary analysis that is sure to be essential reading for years to come."--Jacket

An entertaining rewriting of Roman history from the perspective of the 'Barbarians' - who weren't really barbaric at all!. Terry Jones' Barbarians takes a completely fresh approach to Roman history.
