The project of which this series represents the final, definitive publication has been sponsored since 1979 by the British School of Archaeology in Jerusalem (now the Council for British Research in the Levant). When complete, the Corpus will contain a topographical listing of all the 500 or so church buildings of the Kingdom that are attested by documentary or surviving evidence, and individual descriptions and discussions of them in terms of their identification, building history and architecture. Some of the buildings have already been published before, while many others are published here for the first time. A feature of the Corpus, however, is the standardized format in which the evidence for each building is presented; this also extends to the plans and elevations, based for the most part on new field surveys, which are drawn to a uniform style and (so far as is practicable) scale. The Corpus will therefore be an indispensable work of reference to all those concerned with the medieval topography and archaeology of the Holy Land, with the history of the church in the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem, and with the architecture of the Latin East.

Review of the hardback: 'Since the appearance of the first volume in 1993, the Corpus has represented the best in academic research and publication. Pringle's command of the documentary sources and knowledge of the architecture and archaeology of the buildings themselves is, literally, second to none, and Cambridge University Press is to be congratulated for its continuing commitment to the publication of this carefully produced and generously illustrated series. Research in the ecclesiastical history of the crusader states is inconceivable without it, and this volume more than matches the quality of its predecessors.' The Journal of Ecclesiastical History
