Liturgy and devotion in the crusader states: introduction: Introduction

Iris Shagrir, Cecilia Gaposchkin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This special issue contains eight essays on the liturgy celebrated in the Latin East in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. The papers as a whole demonstrate how the study of the liturgy can open up the religious and cultural history of the crusades and the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem, reveal crusade spirituality and practice, and trace how the Latins of Outremer expressed through their liturgy their historical consciousness and awareness of contemporary realities.
