1: Today I marry my best friend | Created By: Maggie Crosby & K-T Fink Mr. Harris/ 1st | The Crusades

2: Thesis: | The Crusades were when the European Christians went against the Muslim Turks, in the eleventh to thirteenth centuries, to regain Jerusalem and the Holy Land (Palestine), from the Seljuk Turks.

4: The Crusades were a series of wars fought between the Christians and the "Infidels". The Christians launched these wars to try and win the Holy Land back.

5: Cause | The Crusades started because the Christians wanted the holy land back. There were many reasons behind their sudden action.

6: Cause: | The first thing that set the Christians off was the massacre of 3000 Christians on pilgrimage. The Holy City had been taken by the Turks who didn't respect the safe passage Christians previously had to the Holy City.

7: Cause: | The next thing that sparked the Crusades was their zeal for pious acts.. They saw themselves as trying to save the Holy Land from Infidels. This was a pious thing to do and they wanted to accomplish it.

8: Cause: | They were persuaded to action by Pope Urban II and Peter the Hermit. Both wanted the Crusades to happen. Pope Urban II convinced Peter to travel and talk about starting a crusade so that the people would move to action.

9: Cause: | One of the smaller, but still important things that added to the cause of the Crusades was that the Teutonic people hadn't settled down from their barbaric ways and still had the urge to fight.. They backed this idea by persuading themselves it was the way to fulfill the will of God, that Jesus Christ wanted them to defend him.

10: The Meaning of The Crusades | The word "Crusade"comes from the old French word "crois", which means cross.

11: Characteristics | The Crusades started in 1095 by Pope Claremont, while he preached at the Council of Claremont. His preaching help lead thousands to immediately sew a cross onto their garments.

12: There were two main objectives to the Crusades. The main objective was to release the Holy Land. The second was intended to seize Spain from the Moores, the Slavs, & Pagans from Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean. | Objectives to the Crusades

13: Types of Crusades | In total there were nine different crusades. The first four are known as the Principle Crusades. Then there were five more that followed. One of them was called the "Children's Crusade". The remaining four, were called the Minor Crusades.

14: Characteristics: | The first four crusades were the most important & scant reference crusade for the following five crusades, other than the Children's Crusade. | What made the Children's Crusade different, was that in this crusade things fell. The Children's Crusade led the decline to all future crusades.

15: The First Crusade | The first crusade lasted from 1095-1099. It established the Latin Kingdom ofJerusalem.As well as providing more land for the crusading knights.The crusading knights traveled across Europe to try their fortunes (ways), and visit the Holy Sepulchre.

16: The last crusade was the fall to Jerusalem & Acre. Acre was the Christian city. This all happened in 1291. | The Last Crusade

17: Significance: Effect of the Crusades for People in the Past & its Legacy. | - The Effect of the crusades on Europe were that they were very important in the history for progress of civilization in the dark/ middle ages. - They influenced the wealth and power of the Catholic church in many ways. Some ways were their political matter, feudalism, intellectual development, social effects, & it promoted famous voyages of discovery.

18: The Crusades Left Their Mark | The Crusades have been said to save the Western World from conquest by Islam. The wars were not intended to conquer people, but to win back their Holy Land. The Crusades also became a symbol of dedication to something good. So much that it is sometimes used as an adjective. Like How Batman can be called "the Caped Crusader".

19: Conclusion: | We conclude that the crusades were beneficial to Europe, by the fact of defending the Holy Land and their people. The Muslims had previously massacred 3000 Christian that were on their sacred land.
