Still image from The Crusades: Crescent And The Cross

Unfurls two centuries of war between two of the world's most enduring religions in an ancient, unending struggle of human and divine drama. A literal city of God, Jerusalem had been under Muslim control for over 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 bringing it under Christian control. Countless battles, amazing feats, and an unforgettable cast of characters forged legends and legacies, but clear victory remained elusive. Only the 13th century and a new scourge from the steppes of Asia would bring an end to the Crusades.
