DEBATE ON THE HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE OF THE RELIGIOUS WAR, IN LA NUCIA

"La guerra santa y el peregrinaje por el mediterráneo en la Edad Media" (The religious war and the pilgrimage around the Mediterranean in the Middle Ages) is the central theme of the "VIII Seminario Internacional de Historia Medieval" (Seventh International Seminar on Medieval History), which will take place between November 19 and November 21 at the University Venue in La Nucia. According to Leonardo Soler, the secretary of the course, "the secret of the success of this seminar -the most consolidated one of the Faculty of Arts- lies on the topic, because it is linked to the present time".

"Words such as religious war, jihad, crusades or Templars are now usual terms that appear constantly in the media, but their origin is in the Middle Ages", affirms Soler. In this seminar, the origins, causes and consequences of the religious confrontations, mainly between Muslims and Christians, will be analysed, as well as the social and political repercussions that they had, because "it is essential to know the past in order to understand what is going on in the present time", says Soler.

The speakers at the conferences, coordinated by José Vicente Cabezuelo and Carlos de Ayala, will be important Spanish figures, as well as French and Italian. Among the conferences, it is worth pointing out one that will focus on the crusades and the video games. It will take place on Saturday, November 21 at 1 p.m. and the name of the conference is "Cruzadas, cruzados y videojuegos" (Crusades, crusaders and video games).
