What Caused the Crusades?
The crusades, a war between Christians and Moslems, was centered around the city of Jerusalem. The city held a Holy significance to the Christian religion. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem commemorated the hill of crucifixion and the tomb of Christ's burial and was visited by Pilgrims. In 1065 Jerusalem was taken by the Turks and 3000 Christians were massacred starting a chain of events which contributed to the cause of the crusades. The Crusades started in 1095 when Pope Claremont preached the First Crusade at the Council of Claremont. The Pope's preaching led to thousands immediately affixing the cross to their garments - the name Crusade given to the Holy Wars came from old French word 'crois' meaning 'cross'. Crusaders both from Upper and Lower classes were inlisted to fight and this gave rise to the important knightly orders such as the Knights Templar, the Teutonic Knights and the Hospitallers. These orders of religious knights working from monastic rule were sworn to defend the holy land and pilgrims en route to Jerusalem.
