Research Paper: The New Western Wall: the use of the Crusades in the rationale of far-right organisations and what this reveals about the readings of its history.

“The triumphs of the Crusade were the triumphs of faith. But faith without wisdom is a dangerous thing.” This paper seeks to demonstrate the uses of the Crusades in the rationale of both Christian extremist and Islamist organisations and what this reveals about the readings of its history.

I'm currently a second-year history student at Durham University from West Sussex with a particular interest in connections between the modern and medieval worlds. For my research, I will be looking at the use of the Crusades within far-right organizations and what it reveals about the readings of crusade history. Also, I like music and photography.
