2. ONLINE Conference: “Conflict on Crusade”, California State University, East Bay, 3-9 August 2021
Hostile encounters were a fundamental component of the crusades and life in the Latin East. Combatants strategized, confronted, and defended against their opponents, often recording their military endeavours in writing or, occasionally, within the landscape itself. This virtual conference will investigate some of these elements.
