Historians of the Middle Ages, however, have tended to take a narrow view of that conflict by focusing primarily on Christian perspectives and the crusades directed to the Holy Land in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.

Drawing from both Christian and Islamic sources, Reconquest and Crusade in Medieval Spain attempts to redress the imbalance in part by demonstrating that the clash of arms between Christians and Muslims in the Iberian peninsula that began in the early eighth century was transformed into a crusade by the papacy during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.

Successive popes accorded to Christian warriors willing to participate in the peninsular wars against Islam the same crusading benefits offered to those going to the Holy Land. Joseph F. OCallaghan clearly demonstrates that any study of the history of the crusades must take a broader view of the Mediterranean to include medieval Spain.
