View Curriculum
  • A basic knowledge of Medieval Europe (High Middle Ages specifically) and the Middle East in the same period is helpful. However, the course has low requirements, aims for beginners, and any questions can be answered one on one.

This course, a continuation to Exploring the Crusades: Part 1, delves into a detailed history of the third through sixth crusades, including their characters, the root causes, and more. It is intended as a followup to, and refers back to the first course occasionally, but can be understood by itself as well. The course is intended to help beginners feel at home, much like part 1, while still providing something new for anyone up to and including an intermediate level. It is recommended to begin at part 1 if possible, but for readers who choose to jump right in, guidance is available in case of confusion. The course also contains some important background material on the Middle East and historical figures such as Saladin to provide context, as well as covering lesser-known events in the period, such as the Albigensian Crusade.

Who is the target audience?
  • Students with an interest in the crusade period, but no knowledge of it
  • Students with a broader interest in European or Middle Eastern history
  • Anyone looking for historical education and entertainment at the same time
  • Students who already know a good deal about the crusades, but are looking for more in-depth knowledge

Unlike in part one, this course will dive directly into the events preceding the third crusade, with no preamble, as I am assuming familiarity either through the first course or by knowing enough to skip to here. I will use this space to say that if you happen to have jumped in and want context in brief, I can still provide it; this is also your reminder that you can ask questions whenever you need to!

Historian at Udemy

Owen Kinnersly is an amateur writer, Japanese-to-English translator and historian, living in Japan and increasingly self-conscious about writing in the third person. After several years of study at Athabasca Univeristy, and over a decade of daily independent research. By making courses here, he hopes to spread some knowledge on lesser-known parts of history, and spark new interest in the field.

Here you can expect courses covering either more obscure historical topics, or less well-known details of major topics. The courses are appropriate for anyone from a beginning to intermediate level of knowledge, and are written to entertain as much as to educate.

If you have any questions over course material, he is available at irregular hours but will reply within 48 hours at most, barring exceptional circumstances.
