    How were the crusades, and the crusaders, narrated, described, and romanticised by the various communities that experienced or remembered them? This Companion provides a critical overview of the diverse and multilingual literary output connected with crusading over the last millenium, from the first writings which sought to understand and report on what was happening, to contemporary medievalism in which crusading is a potent image of holy war and jihad.
