Transcript of 02.03 The Crusades Assessment

Pope Urban II Addressing The Council Of Clermont
"In 1095, I Called The Council of Clermont to order to announce important problems in the Roman Catholic Church. Within that council, I gave a speech where I myself challenged the lords of Europe to combine their forces to reclaim the Holy Land from its Muslim conquerors."
Pope Urban II
Peter the Hermit giving oders to his army.
"In 1096, I pulled together an army of peasants and soldiers with the great sermons. Together, the peasants and soldiers plunged eastward toward Constantinople and it came to be known as the People’s Crusade. I stayed behind in Constantinople as his army crossed into Anatolia. Sadly, the People’s Crusade did not turn out the way I would have wanted it too. Nearly all of my crusaders were killed by Turkish soldiers."
Peter the Hermit

"I was born in Jerusalem around 1130, I grew up in the Crusader States. Studied in the school in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem including in the universities of Paris. And at the university of Bologna in Europe. When I returned to the Holy Land in 1165, I became a religious official in the city of Tyre. Which is now known as Lebanon. I also served as an adviser and tutor for the Christian lords of the Kingdom of Jerusalem."

"I succeeded where other Muslim leaders failed. I was the one who united the fragments of Islam in Southwest Asia and North Africa and rid the Crusaders from Jerusalem. Around the mid-12th century, I rose to lead the Seljuk’s and was successful in uniting the fragmented Muslim armies of Southwest Asia and North Africa."

"Only I remained to lead the Christian armies. I led many campaigns against Jerusalem and started a curious relationship with my foe, Saladin, while in the process. However, I did fail to retake the city. But In 1192, Saladin and I reached a truce. According to this truce, Saladin and his Muslim empire was able to keep control of Jerusalem but he granted Christians the right to visit the city and their shrines."
