Learn Classical & New Testament Greek - Online Courses

It is the foundation of many English words such as 'academy', which can be traced back to the ancient Greek word 'Akademia', referring to Plato's school of philosophy located near Athens.

  2. The Crusades as seen from Western, Byzantine and Islamic perspectives

    Course Date: Thu 21 Jan 2021
    Location on this date: Online
    The Crusades are the defining event of the Middle Ages. They brought the very different civilisations of Western Europe, Byzantium and Islam into an extended period of both conflict and peaceful co-existence. The biggest loser was the Byzantine Empire, which emerged shattered and doomed from the encounter. The biggest winner was Western Europe, which was brought in close contact with the older and more sophisticated civilisations of the East, and which found its own progress greatly hastened. As for Islam, the Crusades ensured that the Near East would be gradually brought under the long hegemony of the Ottomans.



    This was an age of striking individuals – Alexius, Bohemond, Enrico Dandolo, Saladin, Richard the Lion Heart, and many others. It is an age filled with unforgettable – and possibly true – stories of heroism and atrocity.
