Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

It's a compilation of medieval Arab authors on the crusades edited by Francesco Gabrieli, Storici arabi delle crociate, Einaudi,latest edition 2007.

There is an excerpt on the assassin cult as well as the account of an Arab who had gained the trust of a prominent European figure so as to assassinate him.I recall that it was a suicidal mission that took several years to carry out. They're called "sleepers" now. Catchy thing.

As soon as I find my copy I'll brush up and be more concise.
