Medieval warfare, religious military orders, crusades in Spain, crusades in Latin east, Mediterranean history, books and manuscripts

Research:
My research examines frontier areas in the Mediterranean region between Christians and Muslims in the period of the 11th-15th centuries.  I am particularly interested in the differences between the realities of frontier life and the official versions composed for northern Europeans.  I am finishing a book on the 1480 Ottoman siege of the Knights Hospitaller on the island of Rhodes, and I have been collecting materials on piracy and Hospitaller Rhodes.
