Event Flyer
The Crusades are considered a largely male endeavor but due to capture, death in battle and a high female birth rate, women often ruled the new kingdoms. Learn about Melisende, queen of Jerusalem, Alice and Constance of Antioch, Emma, the “Lady of Jaffa” and many others, doing what traditional historians insisted that women never did.
Sharan Newman will also be signing copies of her new book Death Before Compline, a collection of short stories that take us into the day to day reality of medieval religious and family life, as it is lived by a variety of people: from nuns, noble people, scholars, courtiers, merchants, hermetic spinsters and children, published by ACMRS imprint Bagwyn Books.
