Apparently, the Crusades were to spread Christianity and to get Jerusalem and other Christian-based cities back. Jerusalem was almost totally inhabited by Muslims at the time.

[quote]The Objectives of the crusades was at first to release the Holy Land, in particular Jerusalem, from the Saracens, but in time was extended to seizing Spain from the Moors, the Slavs and Pagans from eastern Europe, and the islands of the Mediterranean.[/quote]

(Not to mention the people there were also being attacked by Vikings.)

I agree with Agent about everything God does was planned. He may've had the Crusades take place so that Christianity would spread. Maybe He just wanted a lot of people to die.

Hey this is Sun E from Nanowrimo. Um, just thought I'd mention that the links don't work, at least not for me. They seem interesting though.

Agent said...

Really? Odd. How about this one: ?

Just copy and paste it into the search bar. Thanks for reading, Sunny E.

I think she means the links at the end of the post. :P

Agent said...

Undoubtedly. : ) Sadly, I didn't think of that until after I posted. LOL
