Dr. Madden provides a clear and easily understood presentation of the subject matter. You learn a lot from his lectures.
Good foundation lecture. Grateful for reading list am
Nd looking forward to copies of slides.
I have just taken the first session of Dr Maddens class and I am so inspired. I have never had the run up to the crusades explained in such a succinct and understandable way. Dr ‘Madden is able to synthesize a tremendous amount of material on religious and geo political history so its easy to see connections among the bits and pieces of material I have picked up from various sources in multiple attempts to get a deeper insight into “The Middle East”. I can’t wait for the next class and am ordering his books right now.
Dr. Madden delivered a brilliant and accessible introduction to the Crusades. He is a great story teller--offering vivid details and a clear context for what happened. I can't wait for the next class!
Prof Madden makes history come alive. His lectures are detailed, thoughtful and filled with anecdotal tidbits that are relatable to 2020.
