Even if you know little else about Medieval history, you have likely heard of the Crusades, a series of major military struggles between the European kingdoms and the rising Islamic powers for the control over the Holy Land (modern-day Israel, and especially, Jerusalem). But were the Crusades entirely about religion? And what was the impact of the Crusades on Europe, the Byzantine World, and the Islamic World both in the short term and in the long term? This essay is an opportunity for you to consider the origins of the First Crusade and its subsequent development in more detail through the eyes of eye-witnesses and subsequent medieval historians. Please select TWO sources from this collection of primary sources about the First Crusade: https://sourcebooks.fordham.edu/sbook1k.asp#The%20First%20Crusade Based on your sources and their chosen topics of focus, please write an essay considering 1-2 of the following questions: What were the causes of the First Crusade?
