CONFLICT ON CRUSADE CONFERENCE AUGUST

2nd July 2021

The Conflict on Crusade online conference, organised by Michael S. Fulton and Heather Crowley, is running from 3rd to 6th August via Zoom. The NNSC has collaborated to organise the panel for the last day, featuring papers from Giampiero Bagni, Louis Pulford, and Thomas Brosset. Each day will feature an hour and a half panel at 5PM British time.

"Hostile encounters were a fundamental component of the crusades in the Latin East. Combatants strategized, confronted, and defended against their opponents, often recording their military endeavours in writing or, occasionally, within the landscape itself. This virtual conference will investigate key components of conflict in the Latin East, including military strategies, physical and mental experiences of violence, as well as surviving material remains."
