1: The Crusades

2: The crusades had economic, social, and political goals. They also had religious motives. The Crusades were a mission to get the holy land back from the Muslims.

3: Some examples of the goals of the Crusades are: To keep peace in the kingdom and merchants making profits by giving loans to finance the journey.

4: The First Crusades | According to the pope anybody who fought and died on Crusade was assured of a place in heaven. People would go into battle yelling, "God wills it" Most Crusaders were unprepared for battle and did not know the way. Eventually they did take over the city.

5: The Second Crusades | The crusaders were counterattacked by the Turks. The Second Crusade was organized to recapture the city, but it failed.

6: The Third Crusade | The Third Crusade to recapture Jerusalem was led by three of Europe's most powerful monarchs.They were Phillip II of France, German Emperor Frederic I, and the English king, Richard the Lion-Hearted.

7: Philip argued with Richard. Frederick later drowned on the journey. Richard was the only one left to lead and that he did. The Crusade finally ended with a truce between Richard and Saladin.. | The Third Crusade

8: The Forth Crusade | In 1204,the Forth Crusade to capture Jerusalem failed. The knights did not reach the Holy Land.Instead,they ended up looting the city of Constantinople.In the 1200's, four more Crusades to free the holy land were also unsuccessful. | Constantinople

9: The Children's Crusade | The Children's Crusade started in 1212. In France a 12 year-old led a group of 30,000 children. Most of the children died on the journey there; the ones that lived drowned or were sold as slaves. In Germany there was a similar movement made by 20,000 children; these children did make it to Italy but were turned away by the pope. Only about 2,000 survived the trip back home; some boarded a ship bound for the holy land and were never heard from again.

10: The Spanish Crusade | Muslims controlled most f Spain until the Reconquista, a long effort to drive the Muslims out of Spain. In 1492 the Spaniards finally drove them out. After this the Spanish monarchs, Isabella and Ferdinand, united the kingdom under Christianity.

11: The Spanish Crusade | Inquisition is a court held by the Church to suppress hearsay. Heretic people had religious beliefs different from those of the church. Even though many Jews and Muslims converted the church still suspected them of hearsay. Sometimes these people would be in inquisition for weeks or even tortured.

12: Effects of the Crusades | The failed Crusades lessened the power of the pope, weakened feudal nobility, and increased the power of kings. Thousands of people lost their lives in the Crusades. Fr Muslims, the Crusades made hatred to Christians; Jewish persecution increased. Religious fervor, feudalism, and chivalry with explosive energy fueled the Crusades. This energy transferred over to the growth of trade, towns, and universities in medieval Europe.
