Christians, Muslims and Jews in the Medieval Mediterranean, or Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Holy War But Were Afraid to Ask

Presented by Brian Catlos, Professor of Religious Studies   

The Crusades has been presented as an era of unremitting holy war and religious violence. Both academics and pundits point to it as the origin of the supposed “Clash of Civilizations” that characterizes Islamic-Christian-Jewish relations. But what is it? Historian Brian A. Catlos looks at the causes and contexts of the Crusade for a provocative retelling of the history of the era, before examining the lives and careers of a selection of individuals who exemplify the ambiguities and complexity of the era.

No registration required. The presentation is part of CU on the Weekend, which is free and open to the public.
