    Book details


Visions of the Crusades call up images of knights, soldiers, and priests. However, evidence suggests that many women played an active role in the actions and culture of the Crusades. Gendering the Crusades stands as the first substantial exploration of this comparatively neglected topic. Offering interdisciplinary readings of new and old sources that examine masculinity, gender roles, and historical narratives, these essays show the key roles played by women in the military, politics, and family life. From the Knights Templars' devotion to female saints to Anna Comnena's account of the first Crusade, all of the topics covered in the book look at the way society structures and imagines itself.

[that] examine to one degree or another the medieval perception of women's roles and presence during the crusades... This makes for enjoyable and profitable reading." -- Louis Haas, "The Historian""Extremely successful... the contributers should be congratulated on turning the fruits of their studies into a thoroughly worth-while publication." -- International History Review"This is an excellent collection of thirteen articles from scholars...
