Description: Professor Christopher Tyerman is a fellow of Hertford College at Oxford University, where in 2015 he was awarded a personal chair as Professor of History of the Crusades. He has written and contributed to TV documentaries extensively on many aspects of the Middle Ages, particularly the Crusades. His books include God’s War – A New History of The Crusades and the recent How to plan a Crusade: Reason and Religious War in the High Middle Ages, described by a critic as ‘wonderfully written and characteristically brilliant’. His analysis of the Crusades is notable for its wide historical range and in analysing the subject from its earliest inception to the present day. As Middle Eastern tensions continue to feature prominently in our news today, this lecture is of more than academic interest.
