International aspects of the military orders during the Crusades.
The military orders, particularly the Templars and Hospitallers, depended upon intense West-East contacts and networks of far-reaching geographical proportions (from Spain to the Holy Land, from Scotland to northern Africa) for the exchange of personnel, goods, and money.  The essays of this collection consider general aspects and individual cases; the mobilization of resources for the East; regional studies—mobility and the military orders in the West; and national considerations in the international arena.

Helen Nicholson is Reader in History at Cardiff University, Wales, UK, and author of The Knights Hospitaller and Templars, Hospitallers, and Teutonic Knights: Images of the Military Orders. Jochen Burgtorf is Assistant Professor of History at California State University, Fullerton, and has published articles in Autour de la première croisade, edited by Michel Balard, and The Military Orders, Volume II: Welfare and Warfare, edited by Helen Nicholson.

“An in-depth assessment of how and to what extent the orders actually moved personnel and resources around Christendom. . . . All the essays are impressive pieces of scholarship well based in primary sources.”-- Frederic J. Baumgartner, author of From Spear to Flintlock: A History of War in Europe and the Middle East to the French Revolution.
