First published by the U. of Wales Press in 2001, this collection of 13 articles provides a refreshing departure from the traditional historical approaches common to crusade studies. Among the topics are Anna Comnenàs account of the First Crusade, Hildegard of Bingen's advice to a prince before embarking on crusade, gender and papal policy, women's role in fighting, and the Templar devotion to female saints. The contributors teach history, mainly in the UK and Israel; three are graduate students. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
