Product description


For all academic libraries with collections on the Crusades and medieval monasticism. CHOICE A persuasive and well-constructed study, well written and argued. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW Does a fine job of explaining the role of the military orders in southern French society. AMERICAN HISTORICAL REVIEW

From the Back Cover

A persuasive and well-constructed study, well written and argued. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW

The military and religious orders of the Knights Templar (founded 1120) and Knights Hospitaller (founded c.1099) were a driving force throughout the long history of the crusades. This study examines the work of the two orders closely, using original charters to analyse their activities in their administrative heartland in southern France. Recruitment, fund-raising, farming, shipping, and communal life are all touched upon, and the orders' commitment to crusading through control and supply of manpower, money, arms and supplies is continually assessed. Dr Selwood shows the orders at the centre of religious life in Occitania, highlighting their success compared with other new orders such as the Cistercians, and looking at their relationships with the secular and monastic Church. Other themes addressed include the orders' relationship to Occitanian society and to the laiety, their involvement with pilgrimage to Jerusalem, their innovative administrative structures, and their logistical operations.
