HIS 321 - The Crusades


3 credits
The Crusades mark the first major clash between Christianity and Islam. These two religions and cultures began over three hundred years of warfare-Islam on the offensive and Christianity on the defensive. The idea of crusades for the faith became an important aspect of the medieval age in Europe. This course will not only study the crusades in the Holy Land and Spain against Islam, but also the Northern Crusades against paganism and other crusades mounted against heresy in the Christian faith. May be taken as a 400 level thesis course with instructor approval. Course may not be repeated if already taken at the 300 level.
Term Offered: Odd spring semesters
