9780860784760: Crusaders and Heretics, Twelfth to Fourteenth Centuries (Variorum Collected Studies)

These articles seek to understand the attitudes and reactions of medieval society to both external threat and internal dissension, whether real or imagined. The crusaders encompass the Templars and the Knights of St Lazarus, members of military orders committed to the cause of perpetual battle for the faith; more reluctant secular knights urged into the complicated conflicts of Latin Greece by the papacy; and peasant enthusiasts from northern France, ultimately turning their frustration on the clergy and the Jews. Heretics range from Cathars, real opponents of the Church, to the lepers, imaginary subverters of society, allegedly in league with the two other perceived enemies of Western Christendom, the Jews and the Muslims.

Malcolm Barber, University of Reading, UK

Review:

'All scholars and students interested in the related areas of the Order of the Militia of the Temple, the crusades, and heresy will rejoice in the appearance of this collection...Barber has provided a marvellous collection in this volume. Any crusades historian, historian of the Latin East, or specialist in heresy or the military orders would omit this material at his or her peril. The exhaustive notes, especially to primary sources, make these articles a veritable treasure trove.' Parergon, Vol. 15, No. 2
