Abstract

This session explores Crusades and memory from various perspectives and in different times, dealing in particular with questions of how the remembrance of the military campaigns in the Holy Land generated and formed collective memories over time. Focusing on diverse sources (texts, images, maps, objects) as complex media in their specific materialities for defining and negotiating plural images of the Crusades, the session also aims to show, how the three temporal dimensions past, present, and future were intertwined within these creative, dynamic, and multidimensional processes of remembering throughout the Middle Ages.
