Who was the best Order of Knights
I think it was the Knights Hospitaller
Nice thread you got here.
Be a shame if something happened to it.
>yfw you realize the Crusaders found persecuting and fighting other Christians more justified than fighting infidels.
True sign of how noble the Crusades were.
(pic from ''The Crusades and the Christian World of the East - Rough Tolerance, C. MacEvitt,'')
Given that most people see the Crusades as a ''Christian vs Muslim'' fight, this is pretty revealing. Given that the Roman Christianity was decided upon 300 years after Christ, just merely beating Arianism, only to assert everything else as heresy afterwards and fight those people more brutally than the entire reason the Crusades were supposed to be happening (the Christians being persecuted by the Muslims)
>'On November 27, 1095, Pope Urban II makes perhaps the most influential speech of the Middle Ages, giving rise to the Crusades by calling all Christians in Europe to war against Muslims in order to reclaim the Holy Land, with a cry of “Deus vult!” or “God wills it!”'
I think that's pretty insightful.
