The Sepulchre of Christ and the Medieval West

From the Beginning to 1600

Colin Morris

  • The first book to focus on the tomb of Christ as a vital cultural influence on Western Europe
  • Takes a genuinely new approach to the Crusades
  • Explores the rivalry between Muslims and Christians over Jerusalem, and thus the roots of hostility between different faiths in the Middle East
