Personal profile


I am currently working on a PhD. My thesis is about how the crusade movement affected the finances and assets of people and institutions in England between 1213 and 1337. There is certainly a need for such a study. There exists no monograph on how crusading affected the wealth of crusaders and their families in particular and Western European society in general. As Riley-Smith recently observed, ‘the economic effects of the crusades have never been researched and no economic history of the movement has ever been written.’
