• Intellectual and cultural transformations within the world of Islam generated as a response to the Crusades. • Community dynamics between and within different religious groups: e.g., Sunni-Shiʿi interaction, relations among different eastern Christian communities, policies of the Latin Church towards local Christian groups, Jewish life under Frankish rule, etc. • Exchanges between locals and Franks, and between the Muslim World and Latin Europe: e.g., diplomacy, commerce, scholarship, etc. • Cultural and other everyday relations between the Franks and indigenous populations: art, cuisine, architecture, technology, etc.
