Description
Although the Crusades are generally thought of in terms of the European attempt to conquer and colonize the Holy Land, from the twelfth century onward crusading also embraced the "reconquest" of Spain from the Muslims. This eyewitness account of this other aspect of the Second Crusade provides much detail on medieval warfare and the organization of armies, as well as Christian views of Muslims and Muslim views of Christians.

The new introduction by Jonathan Phillips offers the latest scholarship on the integral place of the Lisbon expedition in the Second Crusade, the identity of the text's author, and his message for crusaders.
