    What Were the Crusades, and Were They Justified?

    What were the Crusades?

    What are the major objections against the Crusades?

    Was the First Crusade miraculous?

    Why did the Christians sometimes lose to the Muslims?

    This video answers these questions, and much more. With a special emphasis on the First Crusade and the Great Battle of Antioch, this video covers various angles of the issue and focuses on some of the most interesting moments of the exciting and miraculous First Crusade.

    Note for those with a short attention span: some of the most interesting parts come near the middle or end of the video. The beginning deals with important background information.

    This video could also be called, "The First Crusade and the Great Battle of Antioch."

    Excellent. So refreshing to hear a voice of reason on the subject, albeit his Catholic faith could be a detractor in any argument with Atheists, Pagans, and Muslims. But it comes with the territory of any historical religious subject, especially when it concerns Germanic people.

    The first question would be: What did they defend? Their religion or their nation?

    Second: Who financed it?

    third: What was gained and who took advantage of it?

    Their religion, for nation is nothing without religion.

    The crusaders themselves, by selling their property.

    Free access to the Levant was gained, and European pilgrims and traders profited from it.

    The Petty Infighting among Germanics was the downfall of Crusader states. Otherwise, if Normandy, France, England, Lombard League and Holy Roman Empire had joined hands, no amount of Saladins, Alp Arslans or Egyptian Fatimids could have brought them down.
