The Latins in Greece: A Brief Introduction 19 of Greece was always far beyond the ambitions of this volume. Rather, this book was conceived as an introduction to the field of study of Latin Greece and an overview of the essential aspects of the societies that emerged in the aftermath of the Fourth Crusade with an emphasis on their social, religious and political institutions.
Theories of plotting and conspiracies to divert the crusade towards Constantinople were once proposed by a number of scholars. These theories proved fanciful and ill-supported by evidence. They were followed by more sombre analyses of the circumstances surrounding the expedition and a series of more or less unanticipated difficulties that altered its course. 15 Given all this interest in this crusading attack on Christian Byzantium, it is rather ironical that the crusades which were proclaimed in the 13th century with the avowed intention of conquering or holding on to Byzantine territories have remained in relevant obscurity.
