Summary
"Puts us on the ground in the Mediterranean world of 1050-1200, [experiencing] the sights and sounds of the region just as enlightened Islamic empires and primitive Christendom began to contest it. We learn about the siege tactics, theological disputes, and poetry of this enthralling time. And we see that people of different faiths coexisted far more frequently than we are commonly told"--
