 About the Book 

The crusades played a significant part in the history of later medieval Europe, yet the nature of the relationship between the crusading movement and the societies that sponsored it remains fragmented. This ambitious study provides unparalleled insight into the impact of the movement on one such society, late 13th-century England, analyzing the effect of the crusading call upon people of the time, and assessing the factors and influences that conditioned their response. Drawing on a wide range of sources, Lloyd surveys the ways in which the crusade was promoted, preached, organized, and financed, and considers these processes in their social and political context.
