The Crusades : a history of armed pilgrimage and holy war by Geoffrey Hindley( Book )
21 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
... the idea of a war for the faith had been around for many years. Why it started, when, and what was the reality of 'The Crusades' are some of the questions this book aims to answer. Many people saw the Crusades as pilgrimages, many believed they were doing the will of God, and many too went for the booty. This was an institution that for more than five centuries punctuated European history, troubled Christian consciences and embittered Muslim attitudes towards the West. [The author] takes us from the Middle East and Muslin Spain to the pagan Baltic when 'Crusaders' reclaimed or extended Europe's frontiers, and offers lively portraits of major personalities who took part, from Godfrey of Bouillon, the first Latin ruler of Jerusalem, to Etienne the visionary French peasant boy who inspired the tragic 'Children's Crusade'. [The author] sheds light on some of the most pressing issues of religious division and shows how the Crusades helped to shape Europe, the modern world and relations between Christian and Muslin countries to this day.-Dust jacket

A brief history of the Anglo-Saxons by Geoffrey Hindley( Book )
8 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is the early story of the English people, from the end of Roman Britain up to the Norman Conquest in 1066. A distinct English identity developed during this crucial time, only to be stamped out by the arrival of the Normans. But Geoffrey Hindley, one of our most respected medieval historians, shows how the eclipse was superficial, and how a strong Anglo-Saxon legacy can be found in our culture and society today." "The barbaric warrior world of the Old English poem Beowulf gave way to a time of cultural, religious and political firsts. While the rest of Europe was tied to Latin, England began to conduct much of its affairs in its own language. With its centralized bureaucracy, it became the first true 'nation' in Europe." "Hindley picks out glories like the Lindisfarne Gospels and looks at some notable ladies, including AEthelflaed, Lady of the Mercians, a strategist and war leader; Emma, queen and power broker; and Hilda, abbess and trainer of bishops. He discusses Alfred's reputation as England's saviour against the Vikings, examines new research and recent archaeological finds and explores intriguing questions like: was the Bayeux Tapestry made in England or France, could King Harold have survived Hastings?
