Jr Sem: The Crusades in History

The Crusades have arguably had a greater impact on inter-faith relations than any other single historical event. This module seeks to understand the original Crusades in their political, social, and religious context and to understand how they have shaped relations between followers of the three Abrahamic faiths, particularly in the modern period. The course will seek to move beyond stereotypes to have a greater understanding of the issues involved, in the belief that a more balanced view of history promotes greater religious harmony in society.
