This is a study of the way in which the Franciscan and Dominican orders became involved in preaching the Cross and an examination of their contribution to the crusading movement of the 13th century. The papacy used large numbers of trained preachers from these orders in order to provide the Crusades with a well-organized and efficient propaganda back-up throughout Europe. The book explains how the propaganda campaigns were organized and how the recruitment of crusaders took place. It also challenges the traditional pacifist view of the founder saints of the two orders by showing them to be supporters of the Crusades themselves.
