REL 265 - The Crusades in the Middle East

4 credits (Fall or Spring)
Cross-listed as: HIS 265 .  What did it feel like to get crusaded? In this course, we will examine the roughly two-century period from the First Crusade in 1095 to the final expulsion of Latin Crusaders from the Middle East in 1291. Our explorations will center on the perspectives of the invaded, rather than the invaders. How did Muslims, Jews, and Easter Christians of the medieval Middle East respond to the presences of the Frankish invaders from Europe?

Prerequisite: HIS 100 REL 101 REL 102 REL 103 REL 104 REL 105 , or second-year standing.
