The Last Crusade

The Last Crusade

(p.141) Epilogue The Last Crusade
The Apple of His Eye

William Chester Jordan

Princeton University Press

This concluding chapter reflects on the successes of Louis IX's to convert Muslims and pagans to Christianity. It considers the effects of these successes on the events of 1270. After all, conversion was a major motivating factor in the king's last crusade. This expedition took him to his death from illness at the siege of Tunis in 1270. The chapter speculates on his last circuit of the domain to the many microregions settled with converts whom he had brought back from overseas. These people might have served as a poignant reminder and renewal of this aspect of his crusade mission.
