The Impact of the Crusades on Christians
The Impact of the Crusades on Muslims
The Inquisition was a church court that was established to keep a check over Muslims, and Jews who had converted to Christianity. The judges (inquisitors) used torture to find out whether the supposed converts were practicing their old religion. Some time thousands of people were burned to death. The people who refused to Christianity were expelled from the catholic country.
Personal impact: The crusaders were either wounded, killed, or suffered from disease because of wars. Economic impact: Usage of money increased in Europe bringing new professions like banking, making loans and investments, starting tax systems to raise for crusades.Societal impact: The rise of monarchs ending feudalism and society’s influence on food, clothing of the Eastern culture.
The crusades had a major setback on the Muslim community. The number of Muslim lives lost were countless. Their properties were destroyed. Besides these heavily losses the Muslims did get exposed to some new weapons and military ideas. Through trade with Europe they earned riches which helped them to build new mosques, and religious schools. The crusades also unified the Muslims under the fair and strong leaderships of Saladin and Usamah.
