"Singing the Crusades in the Medieval West" presented by Prof. Jennifer Saltzstein and Dr. Nathan Dougherty, Musicology Dept., OU. During the medieval crusades, European knights fanned out across the Mediterranean to conquer (and reclaim) holy lands. In this talk, Prof. Jennifer Saltzstein will explore the historical context of songs written by these crusading knights, while Dr. Nathan Dougherty will discuss and perform several examples.
The Medieval Fair Free Lecture Series is cosponsored by the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies University of Oklahoma.
Come learn more about the middle ages just for the fun of learning! No papers, no test, just interesting information about life long ago.
This event is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Norman Arts Council Hotel Tax Grant Program and the National Endowment for the Arts.
