About the Authors
  • This is the first of a series of three volumes which are intended to present a complete corpus of all the church buildings in use in the crusader kingdom of Jerusalem between the capture of Jerusalem by the First Crusade in 1099 and the loss of Acre in 1291. Volume II completes the general topographical coverage begun in Volume I, while Volume III will deal specifically with Jerusalem, Acre and Tyre. When complete the Corpus will contain a topographical listing of all the 400 or more church buildings of the Kingdom and individual descriptions and discussion of them in terms of their identification, building history and architecture. A feature of the Corpus is the standardized format in which the evidence is presented; this also extends to the plans and elevations which are drawn to a uniform style and scale. The Corpus will therefore be an indispensable work of reference for all those concerned with the history and architecture of the Latin east.

    • This is the most important work of reference ever to be compiled on the church buildings of the Crusader era in the kingdom of Jerusalem
    • Relates in subject-matter to one of the most successful sections of our medieval list, which includes several works by Steven Runciman and Smail's Crusading Warfare
    • Contains over 200 plates and over 80 specially drawn maps and plans for all sites in the A-K category; the three-volume series, when complete, will contain a vast assembly of visual material which illustrates the text
