It aims to challenge disciplinary boundaries by considering this question from multiple vantage points that bring together art historical and archaeological evidence. The papers of this session will include an examination of the Crusader period in Jerusalem in light of Muslim architecture and textual sources, and will discuss the impact of the Crusades on the art and architectural production of Sicily and Anatolia.
