Abstract

Jamie Doherty’s study of the Furnival family reveals the origins, evolution and impact of a crusading tradition on three consecutive generations of crusaders, demonstrating that crusading could be different things to different members of the same family. Ian Bass’s study of bishops during the reign of King Henry III of England looks at how and why their degree of interest in and engagement with the crusades varied. Kathryn Hurlock seeks to contextualise works like the Prophecy of the Six Kings, which suggested the success of the Crusades would only be achieved once England’s neighbours had been conquered, within the framework of Anglo-Irish affairs throughout the Middle Ages.
