HIST 442. The Crusades. 3 Hours.

This course surveys the period of the Crusades from its inception in the late eleventh century, to its maturity in the twelfth and thirteenth century, and through its final demise in the later Middle Ages. The examination of the development of the idea of crusade throughout these periods proves crucial to understanding the Crusades themselves, as the idea of crusade changed dramatically during each period. In this course we will exam each of these periods carefully, taking into consideration the various developments in the idea of crusade. We will also consider the impact that the Crusades have had on modern events. Prerequisite: History 101, 102, 103, 104, 211 or 212 or consent of instructor. NW/T.
