Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“This book is a very fascinating study that illuminates an almost forgotten aspect of monastic history and spirituality.”

—Cyprian Davis, O.S.B., Book Reviews

“This is an excellent book. Andrew Jotischky writes about the religious practices of western men who went to the Holy Land during the time of crusader rule and became hermits there. The result is an extremely important and totally new study of the impact of the crusades on western society, and it is written in a way that is both learned and lively.”

—Bernard Hamilton, author of The Latin Church in the Crusader States
