Crusaders: Dan Jones in conversation
Meet bestselling chronicler of the Middle Ages Dan Jones at the first London event for his new book Crusaders: An Epic History of the Wars for the Holy Lands.
Drawing on his vast historical knowledge, Jones will offer a distinctive perspective on the medieval conflict between Christianity and Islam, and the enduring imprint it's left on relations between the Muslim world and the West. Discussing the various ‘crusaders’ of the book – men and women, Christians of the eastern and western churches, Sunni and Shi’a Muslims, Mongols and even Vikings - Jones will explore how this thousand-year-old conflict continues to shape the modern world.
This event will be chaired by novelist and Managing Editor (Arts & Books) of Prospect Magazine, Sameer Rahim (Asghar and Zahra) and will be followed by a Q&A and book signing.
This event is part of the 2019 Asia House Bagri Foundation Literature Festival.
