About this item

To augment the many Latin sources on the crusades, Latiff allows European readers to see and appreciate the impact of the crusades from the perspective of Muslim poets. The lyricists composed verses at time of victory and at time of loss, telling of crusading invaders and beautiful Frankish women, he says. Their compositions were motivated by both secular and religious influences, and provide insight into the sentiments of propagandists who used the medium of ornate verse as a powerful motivational and recruiting tool during the crusades.
