Fighting Faiths:  The Crusades

At the Council of Clermont held in November of that year, Urban II preached a sermon summoning the nobility and
the people to what became known in history as the First Crusade. To most modern minds, the Crusades are generally
thought to have been a bad idea.  But the facts of the Crusades, the conditions that led up to them, and their long-
lasting impact are generally less well-known than the myths legends.  This course explores:
  • The importance of Jerusalem as a land of relics and shrines
  • The growth of the Islamic empire
  • The violence and chaos of medieval Europe
  • Crusades in Europe and the major Crusades in the Middle East
  • The legacy of the Crusades
