The Tunis Crusade of 1270

A Mediterranean History

Michael Lower

  • The first book-length study of the Tunis Crusade in English
  • Makes a new argument about the role of the crusades in the development of medieval Mediterranean culture
  • Integrates Arabic Sources into crusades history, allowing readers to appreciate the many sides of the crusades, not just the Crusader perspective
  • Brings discussion of violence and religious difference into Mediterranean Studies, a field that usually focuses on day-to-day peaceful inter-religious contact (trade, intellectual exchange, etc.)
