The objects of the present inquiry are two-fold: to assess the reliability of Ibn al-Athir as an historian of the Crusades from the Muslim standpoint, and to distinguish the various strands of information upon which he drew for his crusading material, as far as that may be done in the absence of known sources. Before proceeding to the consideration of these questions, it Is proposed to note briefly his situation with respect to the crusades, and to indicate previous work which has been done in this field.
