Description
Near the end of the eleventh century, Western Europe was in turmoil, beset by invasions from both north and south, by the breakdown of law and order, and by the laxity and ignorance of the clergy. Searching for a way out of the increasing anarchy, and to rid himself of restless, marauding knights, Pope Urban II exhorted the faithful, at the Council of Clermont, to tree Jerusalem from the infidels. The response was immediate and enthusiastic. Proud knights, poor peasants, and artisans armed with pikes, bows and arrows -- and often only sticks or clubs -- set out on the great adventure, fightinq or neqotiating their way through strange, exotic lands till they reached the Holy City. Michael Foss tells the stories of these men and women, often in their own words, which brings this singular event brilliantly to lite. Through these eyewitness accounts, the cliches of history vanish, the distinctions between hero and villain blur: the Saracen is as base or noble, as brave or cruel, as the Crusader.In this remarkable work, Michael Foss opens a window on one of history's most bizarre adventures, in which ordinary people changed the course of history.
