The series of Subsidia to the journal Crusades is designed to include publications deriving from the conferences held by the Society for the Study of the Crusades and the Latin East along with other volumes associated with the society.
The scope of the series parallels that of the journal itself: Crusades covers seven hundred years from the First Crusade (1095-1102) to the fall of Malta (1798) and draws together scholars working on theaters of war, their home fronts and settlements from the Baltic to Africa and from Spain to the Near East and on theology, law, literature, art numismatics and economic, social, political and military history.
