Crusade preaching and the ideal crusader: By Mikka Tamminen

Research output: Contribution to journalLiterature reviewpeer-review

Abstract

Miika Tamminen's book is dedicated to the ideas present in model crusade sermons and manuals for preachers of the thirteenth century addressed both to would-be crusaders and to those who had already taken the cross. Since the author is not a supporter of a ‘traditionalist’ definition of the crusades, he studies all types of expeditions, first of all the crusades to the Holy Land and the Albigensian crusades. The choice of the thirteenth century is not accidental: there are many more sources on crusade preaching than for the previous century
