The Crusaders is one of those dark chapters in history that we would rather forget, especially religious people. In name of the church, or other religions, like the Muslim faith, people killed, destroyed, looted, and burned cities to the ground. There is nothing “holy” about attacking and plundering, yet this is what they did.The Crusades were a series of spiritual fights in the middle ages period that were begun, supported, and sometimes ordered by the Latin Church.The most popular of these Crusades are those to the Holy Land between 1095 and 1291, which aimed to recover Jerusalem and its environments from Islamic rule.Concurrent army operations against the Moors in the Iberian Peninsula (the Reconquista) and pagan Slavic tribe in northern Europe (the Northern Crusades) were called crusades.Other church-sanctioned crusades were waged during the 15th century against unorthodox Christian sects, the Byzantine and Ottoman empires, to oppose paganism and heresy, and for political purposes.In this book, we’ll explore some of the most important crusades everyone should know about. You will learn to understand better why people started them, what drove them to continue, and what ended them. You will learn about the political and religious backgrounds, the fears, hopes, and dreams the leaders and population had, and much more.
