Columbus and the Quest for Jerusalem


This new biography sets Columbus' life and voyages against the backdrop of his eschatological beliefs, arguing that Columbus' primary motivation in attempting to chart a western route to the East Indies lay in his desire to raise funds for a new Crusade to retake Jerusalem as the first step in the fulfilment of history and the coming apocalypse.
