Beautifully illustrated throughout, this authoritative and accessible study by a team of religion historians provides a narrative of the medieval Crusades, the expeditions, and the struggles over Jerusalem and Constantinople. Though remembered primarily for their battles, the Crusades also exposed Europeans to a world outside their own, stimulated trade, and reintroduced parts of Europe's classical literary heritage. In addition to its historical interpretations, this research has contemporary relevance in its identification of the historical roots of 21st century tensions between Islam and the West. Bellamente ilustrado, este texto experto y accesible esta escrito por un equipo de historiadores especializados en las narrativas de las Cruzadas medievales, las grandes expediciones y la lucha sobre Jerusalén y Constantinopla. Mas allá de la guerra, las Cruzadas dieron a conocer un mundo poco conocido por los europeos, estimularon el comercio y volvieron a introducir partes de la herencia clásica de la literatura europea. Aparte del elemento puramente histórico, el libro tiene significado contemporáneo, ya que indentifica las raíces de tensión que hoy existen entre el Islam y el Occidente.
