Madden offers a brilliant and compelling narrative of the crusades and their contemporary relevance. With a cry of \u201CGod wills it!\u201D medieval knights ushered in a new era in European history. Across the continent a wave of pious enthusiasm led many thousands to leave their homes, families, and friends to march to distant lands in a great struggle for Christ and the redemption of the Holy Land. Yet the crusades were more than simply a holy war. They represent a synthesis of attitudes and values that were uniquely medieval\u2014so medieval, in fact, that the crusading movement is rarely understood today. Placing all the major crusades within the social, economic, religious, and intellectual environments that gave birth to the movement and nurtured it for centuries, Madden brings the distant medieval world vividly to life. From Palestine and Europe\u2019s farthest reaches, each crusade is recounted in a clear, concise narrative. The author gives special attention as well to the crusades\u2019 effects on the Islamic world and the Christian Byzantine East.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:description<\/a> \"1.
