Hollywood in the Holy Land: Essays on Film Depictions of the Crusades and Christian-Muslim Clashes
Nickolas Haydock, E.L. Risden
McFarland, Jan 10, 2014 - Performing Arts - 319 pages
This collection of essays analyzes film representations of the Crusades, other medieval East/West encounters, and the modern inheritance of encounters between orientalist fantasy and apocalyptic conspiracy. From studies of the filmic representations of popular figures such as El Cid, Roland, Richard I, and Saladin to examinations of such topics as Templar romance and the role of set design, location and landscape, the essays make significant contributions to our understanding of orientalist medievalism in film. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.
