The arrival of the crusaders in Syria led several scholars to rally the Muslims around a renewed ideology of jihad. This chapter examines the work of Ibn ‘Asakir of Damascus (d. 1176). His works offer our best source of information on the types of religious radicalization that occurred during the first period of crusader presence (that is prior to the emergence of Saladin and the Third Crusade), especially in the Muslim understanding and attitude toward the duty of jihad.

Keywords:   Ibn ‘Asakir, Crusades, jihad, Damascus, radicalization, Saladin
