Outremer Publication Series
Outremer: Studies in the Crusades and the Latin East is a series published by Brepols (Turnhout), devoted to the history of the crusading movement in all of its aspects. It encompasses original research on: crusading in the Eastern Mediterranean region, the Baltic lands, Iberia, Africa and the Atlantic world; the contributions of Western countries to crusading; political and anti-heretical crusades within Europe; the military religious orders; Latin Christian missions of conversion; the Latin territories and settlements in Palestine and Syria, Frankish Greece and Cyprus, Prussia, Livonia and Finland, and their relations with their Christian, Muslim and pagan neighbours; vernacular literature of the crusades. While open to all relevant topics within these broad fields, the series will be particularly receptive to works on more specialised topics such as crusading warfare, prosopography and biography, the Baltic crusades, and the practice and ideology of crusading in the later Middle Ages and the Early Modern period.
The series includes monographs, thematic collections of essays, and editions and translations of original sources. The languages of publication are English and French, although collections of essays may include individual articles in German, Spanish or Italian. Proposals for new publications in the series are welcome. Please contact the General Editor:
Dr Alan V. Murray, Institute for Medieval Studies, University of Leeds, LEEDS LS2 9JT , United Kingdom.
