Saladin and the Crusades
SALADIN AND THE CRUSADES
with Saul Fathi
The Crusades were a series of religious wars between Christians and Muslins
started primarily to secure control of holy sites sacred to both.
In all, there were eight major Crusade expeditions that occurred between 1096 and 1291.
Saladin (1137-1193) was a particularly noteworthy figure, recognized for his tolerance and diplomacy.
Saul Fathi's fascinating lecture on this historical period will explain
the drama and chaos associated with the Crusader "movement."
