Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a short description of the work De expugnatione Lyxbonensi, 'The conquest of Lisbon' on Christian-Muslim relations. The work, in the form of an epistolary narrative, is primarily a description of the conquest of Lisbon by an army of northern European crusaders during the Second Crusade. The significance of De expugnatione Lyxbonensi is twofold. First, the 'conversation' between Christians and Muslims during the siege seems to offer a reasonably accurate reflection of some of the latter's criticisms of the Christian faith, as well as the motives of the crusaders. Second is the author's willingness to consider converting Muslims after the capture of Lisbon.
