The First Crusade: A New History

Thomas Asbridge, "The First Crusade: A New History"
2005 | ISBN: 0743220846. 0195189051 | 432 pages | EPUB | 0,3 MB


Nine hundred years ago the Pope initiated one of the most controversial episodes in Christian history by stating that God wanted European knights to wage a fierce and bloody war against Islam and recapture Jerusalem. Thus was the First Crusade born. Its story is compelling, capable of inspiring awe through tales of bold adventure and revulsion through excesses of violence and barbarity, while at the same time providing us with significant insights into medieval society, morality and mentality. Tom Asbridge re-creates this fascinating period of history in a stunning narrative. Compelling and enlightening in equal measure, and drawing on new research which has radically remoulded our understanding of the movement, THE FIRST CRUSADE is a major work by an outstanding young historian.

On the last Tuesday of November 1095, Pope Urban II delivered an electrifying speech that launched the First Crusade. His words set Christendom afire. Some 100,000 men, from knights to paupers, took up the call--the largest mobilization of manpower since the fall of the Roman Empire.
Now, in The First Crusade, Thomas Asbridge offers a gripping account of a titanic three-year adventure filled with miraculous victories, greedy princes and barbarity on a vast scale. Readers follow the crusaders from their mobilization in Europe (where great waves of anti-Semitism resulted in the deaths of thousands of Jews), to their arrival PDF in Constantinople, an exotic, opulent city--ten times the size of any city in Europe--that bedazzled the Europeans. Featured in vivid detail are the siege of Nicaea and the pivotal battle for Antioch, the single most important military engagement of the entire expedition, where the crusaders, in desperate straits, routed a larger and better-equipped Muslim army. Through all this, the crusaders were driven on by intense religious devotion, convinced that their struggle would earn them the reward of eternal paradise in Heaven. But when a hardened core finally reached Jerusalem in 1099 they unleashed an unholy wave of brutality PDF, slaughtering thousands of Muslims--men, women, and children--all in the name of Christianity.
The First Crusade marked a watershed in relations between Islam and the West, a conflict that set these two world religions on a course toward deep-seated animosity and enduring enmity. The chilling reverberations of this earth-shattering clash still echo in the world today.

Its story is compelling, capable of inspiring awe through tales of bold adventure, and revulsion through excesses of violence and barbarity -- while at the same time providing us with significant insights into early medieval society, morality and mentality.

This is a general review of the history of the First Crusade, which was the expedition sent from Western Europe under the auspices of the Church of Rome, to capture and reclaim Jerusalem from her Muslim rulers. The flow of the narrative works rather well. Not too much tim. Read full review

David rated it it was amazing

This is just incredible, but to me at least completely understandable. A siege mentality helps. The Latin princes had one object in mind, which was the conquest of Jerusalem. Nothing else mattered. They set out without any real preparation, their eyes fixed on that one go. Read full review

Thomas Asbridge's history of the First Crusade is an odd mixture of informative and unhelpful. His work constructing a cohesive narrative from hundreds of primary sources and welding it into accessible, gripping prose is to be commended.

Asbridge writes in a style that not only makes his work palatable to those wary of history books, but also combines a compelling narrative style with excellent scholarship. One barely notices they're learning from an incredibly well-informed historian as they plow through. Read full review

Mark Blackham rated it really liked it

A brilliant book and even a fun read. Asbridge knows his stuff and writes in beautiful prose. But, like most books on the subject, it is a little eurocentric. One of his major themes is to emphasize the intelligence and cunning of the knights, a view that is debatable. No. Read full review

This was a fascinating depiction of the First Crusade. I'm a bit surprised at how few ratings/reviews this book has generated; this is not an academic analysis of the theological differences between Christianity and Islam (as the title implies), but a visceral description. Read full review

Description: The First Crusade (1096-1099) was an extraordinary undertaking. Because the repercussions of that expedition have rippled on down the centuries, there has been an enormous literature on the subject. Yet, unlike so many other areas of medieval history, until now the First Crusade has failed to attract the attention of historians interested in social dynamics. This book is the first to examine the sociology of the sources in order to provide a detailed analysis of the various social classes which participated in the expedition and the tensions between them. In doing so, it offers a fresh approach to the many debates surrounding the subject of the First Crusade.
