The Clash of Titans
The CrusadesStreaming Video - 2013
In this program, Dr. Thomas Asbridge offers a trenchant examination of the Third Crusade and the two renowned figures who have come to embody Crusader war: Richard the Lionheart and the Muslim sultan Saladin. Drawing on eyewitness accounts and historical records, Asbridge constructs a nuanced portrait of the two leaders and their fierce struggle to claim the Holy Land - a battle that he says brought them to their knees even as it served to forge their legends.
