Making the East Latin: The Latin Literature of the Levant in the Era of the Crusades

Publikation: Bog/rapportMonografiForskningpeer review

Abstrakt

This study posits that settlers from a range of different language groups across western Europe in the wake of the First Crusade established a distinctive and coherent Latin literary tradition that both drew on and resisted Levantine Muslim, Christian, and Jewish cultures in the newly occupied territories. In so doing, the settlements of the Levant produced a hybrid Latin literature--a "Levantine Latinity"--distinct from that in Europe. This argument relies on an analysis of the literary and rhetorical techniques employed in these sources, combined with intellectual-historical methods that contextualize authors and their works and examine the literary communities addressed and shaped by them.
