Medieval History
« on: October 10, 2018, 08:08:36 PM »
This link takes you to my account of the events of the First Crusade. This is as part of my ongoing series of essays on medieval history. These essays provide more depth than most online resources, and will always include a list of supplemental reading for those who wish to dig deeper.

In coming months I'll be covering all the main crusades plus a number of related topics, in addition to other medieval subjects.

Third installment: Il Duomo
Read about how Filippo Brunelleschi did what no one else in fifty years and across all of Europe could do: put a dome over the cathedral in Florence. Lots of pretty pictures!

Sequels are tough.

Here's my essay on the Second Crusade, often overlooked, falling as it does between the Successful One and the Romantic One. But it has its own adventures and tragedies.

Nice quote, Rostrum, though I have to admit that when I read the attribution I spent a whole minute trying to figure out where in Escape from New York Brain said that.
