A contemporary chronicler described the First Crusade as the most miraculous undertaking since the resurrection of Jesus. Why did Pope Urban II call for holy war in 1095, why was the response from elites and common folk so dramatic, and why did 100,000 people journey 4,000 kilometres from Europe to Jerusalem in apparent pursuit of a spiritual goal?

The course will explore western Europe and the eastern Mediterranean in the eleventh century to understand the answers to these questions.
