This is the second in a series of three volumes that are intended to present a complete Corpus of all the church buildings, of both the western and the oriental rites, rebuilt or simply in use in the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem between the capture of Jerusalem for the First Crusade in 1099 and the loss of Acre in 1291. The Corpus will become an indispensable work of reference for all those concerned with the medieval topography and archaeology of the Holy Land, with the history of the church in the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem, and with the architecture of the Latin East.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...constitutes a major achievement and will be the standard reference for decades to come." Church History

"...q work of an extremely high scholarly level. Every crusade historian, every architectural scholar, every ecclesiastical specialist will profit enormously from these two volumes. I appreciate especially the great care which has gone into this work, the careful and thorough references to the primary and secondary sources on each place, the simple clear drawings, and detailed photographs." The Medieval Review

"Pringle's Corpus is a prodigious synthesis, critically evaluating an enormous range of primary sources and modern publications, while also presenting the results of the author's own extensive fieldwork....Pringle offers the scholar an indispensable mine of information." Eric A. Ivison, American Journal of Archaeology

"I cannot stress enough the value of the Corpus to scholars working on the Latin East and on medieval Palestine in general. As a source and work of reference it will have an enduring significance; and in Denys Pringle's measured and perceptive judgments it reveals itself to be an absolutely first-class piece of scholarship." Catholic Historical Review
