Title : Women and the First Crusade: Prostitutes or Pilgrims? [The author examines contemporary accounts of the First Crusade and argues that large numbers of women went to Jerusalem. Kostick suggests that there were a variety of motivations depending in part on social status. Futhermore the groups of poor single women identified by earlier scholars as prostitutes should instead be considered participants in the crusade who joined to find a better life. A later version of this essay appears in Kostick's "The Social Structure of the First Crusade." Brill, 2008. Chaper 9, pages 271-285. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
