Autumn Lecture Series
‘Remembering the Crusades in the 15th century’
Speaker: James Gallacher (University of Glasgow)
Tuesday 3 December, 7pm (doors open 6.40pm)
The conquest of Jerusalem in 1099 by the armies of the First Crusade, and the many expeditions that followed, stand as one of the most remarkable episodes in European history, and their profound impact is still with us today. The events of these military and religious expeditions were so dramatic, their significance so monumental, that they became part of the collective memory of communities throughout Europe, Byzantium, the Near East and North Africa.
This talk looks at the ways in which such memories were fashioned, recast, and disseminated from the Middle Ages down to the modern period, but especially 15th-century England and France. It brings together historical sources and material culture, demonstrating how the Crusades were still prominent in the mindset of the 15th-century aristocracy, influencing their perceptions, their actions, and their identities as well as practices of commemoration.
