The course was informative, well put together and enjoyable.
All 8 sections of the program were excellent // Dr. Madden knowledge covering about 600 years of history was great // From big areas to minutiae, he kept us interested and involved //
Knowing little about the period in European history and less about the Crusades, I found Prof. Madden's eight-part seminar a perfect introduction. Although the focus was on the Crusades and primarily from the European perspective, I found myself following up on some of the tangential strands involving other European events, the history of Middle East, and North Africa. Very happy to have taken this course.
It was very rewarding 8 weeks. Tom Madden is a superb lecturer with total command of the subject matter and an engaging style of presentation. Tom is absolutely first-rate in all respects.
I'm almost finished this 8 part course and have discovered what a vast and complicated topic is the Crusades. I am so impressed with Dr. Madden's ability to explain the complex details and context of the many Crusades in such a limited amount of time. I had only the vaguest notion of what the Crusades were but now I have learned so much.
