Overview

This work, the Acta of the colloquium of the same name held in Hernen (Netherlands), is a collection of essays dealing with the relations between East and West in the context of the Crusader States. In this connection "East" refers in particular to the non-Byzantine Oriental Christians, Muslims and Jews who set the tone for daily life in "Outremer" to a great extent. Attention is focused upon the relations between the various communities, the social position of the minorities, and religious and cultural, especially literary, contacts and influences.
