The Crusades in the Context of World History

At a recent Crusades Studies Forum in St. Louis, Missouri, Alfred J. Andrea gave an interesting survey of the connections between an older style of Crusades history and the concerns of World Historians. With his permission, Andrew Holt has posted an illustrated version of the lecture at the Crusades Encyclopedia.

The illustration above shows a salt-cellar from Benin, West Africa, depicting 16th century Portuguese crusader-explorers.
