Contextualising the Fifth Crusade

An Interdisciplinary Colloquium on the Crusading Movement in the First Half of the 13th Century

University of Kent, Canterbury, 13-14 April 2012

The Fifth Crusade was undoubtedly an important episode in history, occurring during what was probably the most intensive period of crusading in both Europe and the Holy Land. But this event was much more than a military campaign. To contribute to the recent new directions in crusades studies, this colloquium brings together an international group of scholars from a wide range of disciplines who are researching different aspects of the crusading movement around the time of the Fifth Crusade.

Keynote speakers:
Prof. Bernard Hamilton (SSCLE President, University of Nottingham)
Prof. Peter Edbury (Cardiff University)
Dr Alan V. Murray (University of Leeds)
