It's possible to love something so much, you judge others.
The Impacts of:
The Crusades are a group of Christians who came together to fight for holy land. Pope Urban II asked the Christians to come together to help him fight for holy land. He asked them to do this because he represented Christianity and the holy land is the birthplace of their god. These people wanted to fight for holy land because they felt as if Jesus Christ was their savior. The Muslims were also involved and they helped fight in the crusades because they wanted a more safe place to practice their religion.
Our theme relates to The Crusades because Pope Urban II loved Jerusalem enough to fight for it back but, they loved Jerusalem so much that he judged the Muslims. In Two Sides in a Crusade, Pope Urban II wanted to gain control of Jerusalem after the Byzantine Emperor took control of holy land. So Pope Urban II decided to gain control back by gathering all the Christians to take up arms and get holy land back. For instance, Pope Urban II said, " Although, O sons of God, you have promised more firmly than ever to keep the peace among yourselves and to preserve the rights of the church, there remains still an important work for you to do. . . ." The impact the Crusades have on the modern world today is that they're still fighting for Holy land. People still have different religions.
