Although the Carmelite Order was founded in the Holy Land during a period when it was under western European rule (13th century), the Carmelites had to migrate back to western Europe after the fall of the Crusader States in 1291. This essay examines the ways in which the Carmelite in the fourteenth century continued to keep the Holy Land in the forefront of European thinking through deployment of supposedly historical texts relating to the Order's past and to the future of Christendom.
