Christian and Muslim Crusades Brayden George

Christian Point of view

Knights were defenders of lands and crusaders of people. In the Middle Ages, knights' organizations were founded on military and religious order to help those in need. Knights were a brotherhood with high values. They were described as courageous, faithful and honest with strength and integrity. The knight orders from centuries ago exists today, while others are part of history. There are 3 main types of knights.
The Templar Knights started in the Middle Ages as the Poor Fellow-Soldier of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon, a military order consisting of lower-class priests and soldiers. The knights defended Jerusalem by protecting and providing safety to pilgrims.
The Knight of the Order of Saint John the Hospitaller were called the Knights Hospitaller and were founded in 1099. History dates the order back to 600 A.D. when they built a hospital for Christian pilgrims. The Hospitallers were knights of Jerusalem, who defended the country. They worked in hospitals and cared for sick pilgrims who travelled to reach Jerusalem.
At the end of the 12th century, a Catholic religious order in Germany founded the Teutonic Knights, whose job was to crusade as a military order. Wearing white coats with black crosses, these Knights worked in hospitals and gave aid to the sick.
The reason for conflict in jerusalem was because muslims, jews, and christians claimed that jerusalem was their holy land. The crusades really did nothing other than cause a lot of death and a long chain of distrust between christians and muslims.

Muslim Perspective

in total there were 9 crusades and the muslims won the joly war on jerusalem because they had control over the city last. out of the 9 the muslims won 5.

Most of the battles were fought near the holy city and some in modern day turkey.
The muslim cavalry shot crossbows and had hammers that they would use to debilitate their enemy so the infantry could finish them off. They also carried a circular shield.

The muslims did not ask for a war but the christians sure gave them one, one that the christians lost. The muslims got to stay in the land they originally owned.

Effects on modern Times

The crusades effect our modern times greatly. without them europe would have stayed in the dark ages and there would not be near as much technological advancement. the war set the course for history.
