Fighting for Christendom : holy war and the crusades by Christopher Tyerman( )

28 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 4,684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: Christopher Tyerman examines the many military operations between 1095 and 1500 that fall under the heading of Wars of the Cross. Beginning with Pope Urban II's dramatic appeal in 1095, Tyerman ranges from the First Crusade--a campaign unrivalled in impact--to the massive expedition lead by Frederick Barbarossa (which ended suddenly when he drowned crossing a river), to the crusade that pitted King Richard I of England against Saladin. Tyerman also discusses lesser expeditions, including the Peasants', Children's, and Shepherds' Crusades. Throughout the book, he clarifies issues of colonialism, cultural exchange, economic exploitation, and the relationship between past and present

From 1096 to 1500, European Christians fought to recreate the Middle East, Muslim Spain, and the pagan Baltic in the image of their God. The Crusades are perhaps both the most familiar and most misunderstood phenomena of the medieval world, and here Christopher Tyerman seeks to recreate, from the ground up, the centuries of violence committed as an act of religious devotion

The debate on the Crusades by Christopher Tyerman( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Hume, the eighteenth century philosopher, famously declared that 'the crusades engrossed the attention of Europe and have ever since engaged the curiosity of man kind'. This is the first book length study of how succeeding generations from the First Crusade in 1099 to the present day have understood, refashioned, moulded and manipulated accounts of these medieval wars of religion to suit changing contemporary circumstances and interests. Modern perceptions of the crusade remain in many places vivid; in some malign and politically toxic. This book explores the literary and academic traditions that have framed past and present debate. The crusades have attracted some of the leading historical writers, scholars and controversialists from John Foxe (of Book of Martyrs fame), to the philosophers G.W. Leibniz, Voltaire and David Hume, to historians such as William Robertson, Edward Gibbon and Leopold Ranke. Academic trends and controversies in Europe, America and the Near East in the last hundred years, including discussions of all the leading modern crusader scholars from Carl Erdmann and Steven Runciman onwards, bring the account up to date in 2010. Accessibly written, a history of histories and historians, the book will be of interest to students and researchers of crusading history from sixth form to postgraduate level and beyond; to cultural historians of the use of the past and of medievalism; and to those generally concerned with how the crusades have retained their power to inflame, especially since 9/11"--Publisher's website

The world of the crusades : an illustrated history by Christopher Tyerman( Book )

5 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout the Middle Ages crusading was justified by religious ideology, but the resulting military campaigns were fueled by concrete objectives: land, resources, power, reputation. Crusaders amassed possessions of all sorts, from castles to reliquaries. Campaigns required material funds and equipment, while conquests produced bureaucracies, taxation, economic exploitation, and commercial regulation. Wealth sustained the Crusades while material objects, from weaponry and military technology to carpentry and shipping, conditioned them. This lavishly illustrated volume considers the material trappings of crusading wars and the objects that memorialized them, in architecture, sculpture, jewelry, painting, and manuscripts. Christopher Tyerman's incorporation of the physical and visual remains of crusading enriches our understanding of how the crusaders themselves articulated their mission, how they viewed their place in the world, and how they related to the cultures they derived from and preyed upon
How to plan a crusade : religious war in the high Middle Ages by Christopher Tyerman( Book )

12 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A spirited and sweeping account of how the crusades really worked--and a revolutionary attempt to rethink how we understand the Middle Ages. The story of the wars and conquests initiated by the First Crusade and its successors is itself so compelling that most accounts move quickly from describing the Pope's calls to arms to the battlefield. In this highly original and enjoyable new book, Christopher Tyerman focuses on something obvious but overlooked: the massive, all-encompassing and hugely costly business of actually preparing a crusade. The efforts of many thousands of men and women, who left their lands and families in Western Europe, and marched off to a highly uncertain future in the Holy Land and elsewhere have never been sufficiently understood. Their actions raise a host of compelling questions about the nature of medieval society. How to Plan a Crusade is remarkably illuminating on the diplomacy, communications, propaganda, use of mass media, medical care, equipment, voyages, money, weapons, wills, ransoms, animals, and the power of prayer during this dynamic era. It brings to life an extraordinary period of history in a new and surprising way. 16 pages of color illustration

Las guerras de Dios : una nueva historia de las cruzadas by Christopher Tyerman( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in Spanish and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ofrece una amplia visión de los movimientos de Cruzada, que estudia no solo los del Próximo Oriente, sino también los de España, los Balcanes y el Báltico, además de la dirigida contra los albigenses. Basado en una sólida erudición, incorpora los resultados de las investigaciones de las últimas décadas, lo que explica que los críticos coincidan en afirmar que supera por completo la obra clásica de Steven Runciman, no solo por los nuevos conocimientos que aporta, sino por su capacidad de mostrarnos las Cruzadas como una suma de episodios sangrientos en una época de violencia y a la vez como una manifestación de una creciente conciencia de identidad común en la Cristiandad europea
