The Avignon Papacy and the Crusades, 1305-1378

Norman Housley

This study focuses on the relationship between the papacy and the 14th-century crusades, arguing that the period witnessed a relentless erosion of papal control. Housley covers all areas where crusading occurred and analyzes Curia's approach to issues such as peacemaking between warring Christian powers, the work of Military Orders, and western attempts to maintain a trade embargo on Mamluk, Egypt.
