A History of the Crusades III Summary


A History of the Crusades III: The Kingdom of Acre and the Later Crusades by Steven Runciman

The third volume of Steven Runciman's classic, hugely influential trilogy on the history of the Crusades

'The whole tale is one of faith and folly, courage and greed, hope and disillusion'

Steven Runciman's triumphant three-volume A History of the Crusades remains an unsurpassed account of the events that changed the world and continue to resonate today. This final volume of the trilogy begins with the glamorous Third Crusade and ends with the ruinous collapse of the crusader states and the degeneration of their ideals, which reached its nadir in the tragic destruction of Byzantium.

'When historical events are written about with this sort of command, they take on not only the universality of a fairy tale but also a certain moral weight. Runciman writes both seductively and instructively about the dignity and beauty of different religious beliefs and about the difficulties of their co-existence' Independent
