The Glory of the Crusades, written by Steve Weidenkopf and drawing on the latest and most authentic medieval scholarship, revisits history from a different perspective and brings to light new findings that challenge the popular narrative. This book encourages us to look beyond what our modern view tells us about wars of greed and religious intolerance, and instead appreciate the act of “armed pilgrimage” driven by a holy zeal to recover conquered Christian lands.

Weidenkopf doesn't attempt to hide or overlook existing flaws or crimes but works to debunk myths used by secular culture that often paint an unfair picture of these events. He calls into focus men and women of faith and immense valor who put their lives at risk in defense of what they believed was just. Delve into this new interpretation with its nuanced understanding of the past, as well as a more complete appreciation for its effects on the present.

Gain insight into some of history’s most controversial events with The Glory of the Crusades: a compelling case for understanding them in their proper context. Stop letting secular culture define how we should understand history — challenge traditional thought with this provocative examination presented in professional detail by expert historian Steve Weidenkopf.

Editorial Reviews

This excellent book employs decades of scholarly research to show average readers what medieval historians have long known that popular culture s image of the Crusades has nothing at all to do with the events themselves. Catholics who cringe at the mention of the Crusades will find in this work a surprising and inspiring story of faith. --Thomas F. Madden, Director, Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Saint Louis University

Steve Weidenkopf explodes common myths about the Crusades and reveals the nobility and heroism of the Crusaders. This is the book to give to anyone who invokes the Crusades as a blot on the Churchs record. --Robert Spencer, Author, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)
