Crescent and the CrossStreaming Video - 2010
A holy city to Christians and Muslims alike, Jerusalem had been under Muslim control for more than 400 years when Christian soldiers first besieged it in 1096 AD. Galvanized by Pope Urban II, waves of Christian warriors had fought their way from Europe to the Holy Land intent on finally bringing it under Christian control. Despite countless battles, total victory remained elusive, and only the 13th century and a new scourge from the steppes of Asia would ultimately bring an end to the Crusades. With breathtaking computer-enhanced visuals, vivid reenactments, and stunning footage from rarely seen locations, this A&E Special brings the first three Crusades alive.
