This is a complete collection in modern English of the key texts describing Saladin’s conquest of Jerusalem in October 1187 and the Third Crusade, which was Christendom’s response to the catastrophe. The largest and most important text in the book is a translation of the fullest version of the Old French Continuation of William Tyre for the years 1184-97. This key medieval narrative poses problems for the historian in that it achieved its present form in the 1240s, though it clearly incorporates much earlier material. Professor Edbury's authoritative introduction, notes and maps help interpretation of this and other contemporary texts which are included in this volume, making it an invaluable resource for teachers and students of the crusades.

About the Author:

Peter Edbury is Reader in Medieval History at the University of Wales, Cardiff.

Review:

'...Peter Edbury provides a valuable annotated translation...he relates this narrative to other accounts of the same events, pointing out discrepancies, clarifying obvious mistakes, and examining the possible biases of the differing accounts. What emerges is a delightful narrative in the idiom of the time, with a cogent modern commentary.' MESA Bulletin 'Edbury's translation is clear and fluent, skilfully balancing the requisites of a faithful adherence to the text with a modern rendition of it. This excellent collection of source material will be a great boon for teachers and students of crusade history.' Journal of Religious History '...students of the Crusades and others with limited Latin and Old French will find this an exceedingly useful body of material.' Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society
