ARHI166 PO - The Crusades: A Cross-Cultural History

When Offered: Spring 2019.
Instructor(s): P. Blessing
Credit: 1

This seminar follows the trajectory of the Crusades in Europe and the Middle East from the late eleventh to the fifteenth century. A particular emphasis will be placed on cultural developments in both regions; the depiction of the other in Latin and Arabic chronicles; the cultural assimilation of the Crusaders into the Holy Land as they settled there, became acquainted with local customs, and transformed holy places, Jerusalem in particular. Once Jerusalem returned to Muslim rule in the twelfth century, some of these changes were undone, while others remained in place. This direct contact also had a profound impact on art in medieval Europe, through pilgrims’ accounts and objects such as glass, metalwork, and textiles produced in Syria or Egypt that became part of church treasuries. Letter grade only.
Satisfies the following General Education Requirement(s), subject to conditions explained in the Degree Requirements section of this Catalog:
