Spain must be a Catholic country. All Muslims are now Christians and Jews must leave
No way am I listening to you!
The crusades continued for another 100 years, but some were popular movements of poor people, such as the Children's Crusade, and not military campaigns. Muslims were gaining back the land that they had lost and by 1219, they took Acre, the last crusader city. This victory ended about 200 years of Christian kingdoms in the Holy Land.
They are converts ! I am sure of it.
The Christians launched the Reconquista to retake the Iberian Peninsula, where the Umayyad Dynasty was. Christian rulers chipped away at Muslim lands and the pace quickened once Cordoba split into rival kingdoms in 1002. By 1248, only the small kingdom Garanda remained in Muslim hands.
THE IMPACT OF THE CRUSADES N CHRISTIANS
So much has changed since the crusades. There are now such amazing fruits.
In the 1400s Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand wanted to make Spain a Catholic country and to do this, they used the Inquisition, a harsh Spanish church court, against converts. Isabella and Ferdinand sent armies to Granada and in 1492, the city fell and the Muslims lost their last stronghold in Spain. Many Jews had to leave their home, Muslims were forced to become Catholics and the remaining were expelled. This ended the cooperation between these groups
THE IMPACT OF THE CRUSADES ON JEWS
We all have to stay in this small ghetto.
The Inquisition was a harsh Spanish court used against converts by Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand. The judges, or inquisitors, sometimes tortured to find out whether converts still practiced their old religion and burned thousands of people at the stake.
I agree. ut they might be practicing their old religion.
Most crusaders either died, were severely injured or died from diseases. There were many economic changes such as knights taking up banking jobs, kings starting tax systems, monarchs gaining power and due to contact with eastern cultures Christians learned about other goods. Richard the Lionheart taxed his people heavily and Anna Comnena wrote that most crusaders only fought for wealth and glory.
Yes, and the monarch has become much more powerful now
But the taxes are too high!
The Jews suffered greatly during the crusades as many of them were killed, tortured to become Christians or their homes and businesses were looted. The prejudice against Jews increased during the crusades and by the end Jews could not hold public office, in 1290 England expelled all Jews and France did he same in 1394. The Jews were segregated, forced to live in ghettos, which were usually separated from towns by gates or walls.
