Sintesi dell'editore

Examine the profound impact of the Crusades with acclaimed Church historian and best-selling author Christopher Bellitto.

Few events have affected the course of civilization as profoundly as the Crusades, a centuries-long period of violent conflict and competition between Islam and Christianity. The Crusades brought destruction and violence to the third monotheistic faith of Judaism, as well. Resurfacing frequently in present-day political conversations about clashes between faiths and cultures, the troubling legacy of the Crusades is undeniable.

In this masterful audio course from award-winning professor Christopher Bellitto, you’ll examine the five major crusading movements from multiple perspectives, gaining a deeper knowledge of what the Holy Land means to Jews, Christians, and Muslims. You’ll also explore the concepts of “just war” and jihad that dominated during the Middle Ages. Along the way you’ll learn about Crusade arts, letters, and architecture; military orders like the Templars and Hospitallers; and the state of Christian-Muslim relations today. 

Simply put, to understand the Crusades is to gain profound insight into the historical course of civilization and the profound contradictions of religious war and human nature itself. You’ll be in good hands with Prof. Bellitto, known for his ability to bring clarity to complex historical events. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn with him today. 

This course is part of the Learn25 collection and comes with a free PDF study guide.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great Intro

This was the intro into the Crusades I was looking for. It strikes a good balance between holistic and comprehensive. I got a good feel for the context, history, and implications (I.e. the current politics). The book also went on some interesting tangents about the myths of the Crusades, the arts and lit born from the Crusades, and shared perspectives about the Crusades from Muslim and Jewish sources. I feel primed with a good framework to begin further exploration.

The audio has some edits which are noticeable but not distracting.
