This book tells the story of the Architecture and the Figural Art produced for the Crusaders after the battle of Hattin and the fall of Jerusalem in 1187, during the one hundred years that Acre was the capital of the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem, 1191–1291. It is an art sponsored by kings and queens, patriarchs and bishops, clergy, monks, friars, knights and soldiers, aristocrats and merchants, all men and women of means, who came as pilgrims, Crusaders, settlers, and men of commerce to the Holy Land. The artists are Franks and Italians born and/or resident in the Holy Land, Westerners who traveled to the Latin East, Eastern Christians, and even Muslims, who worked for Crusader patrons.

Review

"...an erudite discussion of manuscript illuminations and panel paintings...This sumptuous volume is the summation of a lifetime of scholarship by the author on this significant chapter in the history of medieval art...There is no better scholarly resource for the study of these magnificent works of art and this dynamic period of cross-cultural contact." --Religious Studies Review
