‘This book is a very welcome addition to the new historiography on memory and the crusades. In focusing closely on particular texts and contexts, it brings innovative and important insights into how the crusades
were represented and remembered in a variety of ways during the Middle Ages and beyond.’
-Professor Megan Cassidy-Welch, University of Queensland

‘This engrossing volume highlights the exciting work of a new generation of historians of the crusades. Focusing on the way the crusades were reflected in a variety of writing genres, the chapters show how crusading was embedded in broader networks and modes of composition, in continuous dialogue with larger cultural discourses of gender, status, emotion, and trauma.’
-Professor Nicholas Paul, Fordham University
