Recent work: Crusading memories

Associate Professor Megan Cassidy-Welch has edited a new volume of essays exploring the connections between memory studies and medieval crusade. Remembering the Crusades and Crusading examines how crusades were memorialised in the medieval period and reflects on remembering crusade into the modern period. The volume is now available from Routledge.

From the publisher’s website:

“This intensely tight-knit collection will find a place on any crusade historian’s shelf. It’s tremendously wide-ranging and will immediately become the jumping off point for all sorts of future research, not just on crusading but on any aspect of the later Middle Ages. Remembering the holy war was just as important to the movement of history as the holy war itself.”
