Did the crusades have a negative or positive effect. In 1095 pope urban the 2nd called the first crusade which was the start of something that would have an Positive effect on the Eastern empire and christianity. In 1905 the byzantine emperor Alexius Comnenus asked the Eastern empire for help after being threatened by seljuk turks and to aid the eastern empire pope urban called the first crusade so that they could fight back against the muslims with the Eastern empire and take back the holy lands. This crusade would lead to three more which would have a positive effect on christianity and the Eastern and Byzantine empires. Some positive effects were they found new food this also the crusaders conquered more land for the Eastern empire and found new clothing/material. The results crusades had many positive effects on the Eastern and Byzantine empire. One of which was that many more merchants were supporting them or selling to them and they also discovered new foods from the east. These two things helped the empire by allowing them to find new things through trade which ws increased because of the crusades because the crusaders would need more food and equipment. Document 2 states that “merchants in Venice and other northern Italian cities built large fleets to carry crusaders to the holy lands.” “They later used those fleets to open new markets in crusader states.” This shows that the merchants helped the crusaders and then they opened shops where the crusaders were so that
The Crusades was a horrific time. Many people had lost their lives, friends, even family. The Crusades were a battle over the holy land, Jerusalem. The Crusaders, people who had fought in the Crusades, were Christians. They wanted the holy land because they believe that’s where Jesus had died and rose. They had fought against the Muslims who were defending themselves against the Crusaders. The Crusades had its positive outcomes as well as its negative results. Some may wonder, were the results of the Crusades more Positive or Negative? I strongly believe the outcome was mostly negative mainly because the Crusaders didn’t win the holy land, lots of lands were destroyed, and so many people lost their lives in the battle of the Crusades.
The Crusades were one of the most prominent events in Western European history; they were not discrete and unimportant pilgrimages, but a continuous stream of marching Western armies (Crusaders) into the Muslim world, terminating in the creation and eventually the fall of the Islamic Kingdoms. The Crusades were a Holy War of Roman Christianity against Islam, but was it really a “holy war” or was it Western Europe fighting for more land and power? Through Pope Urban II and the Roman Catholic Church’s actions, their proposed motivations seem unclear, and even unchristian. Prior to the Crusades, Urban encouraged that Western Europe fight for their religion but throughout the crusades the real motivations shone though; the Crusaders were power
The Crusades were a group of Christians that Pope Urban II started back in 1095. They also had 9 Crusades, or 9 times when they would attack to get the Holy Land, against the Muslims and Jews, but mostly against the Muslims. During those battles there were both positive and negative. Were the results of the Crusades more positive or negative? The Crusades were more negative than positive because they worsen their relationship with the Jews and Muslims, or religious hatred, they destroyed and betrayed their closest ally, and their towns or cities were difficult to handle.
The crusades were a combined of nine wars for the holy land in jerusalem. Were the results of the Crusades more positive or more negative?The results of the crusades were more negative. Because it grew religious hatred between the three also the crusaders sacked the city of constantinople.Also because of the slaughter of the jews which left hatred.
The impact of the crusades were more negative because In document 1 states that they left a religious hatred behind them because they were very hard on them.Also because they had bad reasons and fought too much and the crusades still wanted to fight and attack each other.Many lives were lost because they fought for a while and they were destroying a lot of Muslims. In document 5 it states that Islam and Christians struggled and Muslims,christian,and
The war between two religions, christianity and islam took place between the eleventh century and the thirteenth century. This event was called the crusades. This event had many impacts, but were they good or bad? I think that it had a negative impact because it caused the churches to split, and the relationships of the religions was very negative.
The crusades were more negative than positive because there were many innocent people were killed because of their religion. In document 1 it states In Europe, crusaders sometimes turned their fury against jews, massacring entire communities. They would do this just because they were
For 200 years from the eleventh century to the twelfth century (1091-1291) a war between Christians (which is the most popular religion at this moment) and the Muslim religion fought to get back the Holy Land. Byzantine Empire were losing against the Muslim. The Byzantine Empire called the Pope for aid, he decided he would help only because they were Christians. This was a barbarous act that caused the death of an abundance amount of people and the eradication of many things. That is why The Crusade had a negative effect of the world even to this day, a big stain. One of the most impactful events that left a mark was the killing of many innocent people during that time. In Doc 1 it states “In Europe, crusaders sometime turned their fury against
The Crusades were battles between European Christians and Muslims, they were fought at the holy land which is Jerusalem . The crusades started in 1095 and ended on 1291. It started because byzantium crumbled and The pope called western christians to take back the holy land. There were both positive and negative about the crusades.The real question is were the results of the crusades more positive or negative. What I have read and annotated I think there is more positive than negative.
While their were some positive aspects to the Crusades their were many negative. To join the Crusades it was a high cost. Soldiers had to leave their homes in groups and had to pay for anything they needed along their journey. The amount of money they would have to pay was an amount that most cannot Afford. Some people had to sell many of they things such as land and personal items. The wealthier people and the Church used taxes which they raised to help them get money and make a bigger hardship for the poor. Some of the Soldier. had to take loans just to pay for their journey and it was still hard for them.
Going against modern day religious beliefs, in 1095AD the Christians went to war to claim the holy city of Jerusalem, massacring the Muslims in a bloody attempt to worship their God. Pope Urban II’s speech at Clermont inspired by claims made by the Byzantium Emperor encouraged the Christians to partake in the First Crusade in an attempt to liberate Jerusalem. The religious and economic factors were the most relevant to cause this crusade, with some influence from desired political gain and little from social factors unrelated to religion. The immediate consequences were positive for the Christians and negative for the Muslims, but the First Crusade launched an ongoing conflict between the Christians and Muslims which had positive and negative consequences for both sides. There are a number of relevant modern sources which examine the causes and consequences of the First Crusade, but, while there are many medieval sources, they do not explicitly discuss the causes and consequences of the war. In order to fully comprehend the First Crusade, it is necessary to analyse the religious, economic, and political factors, as well as the short-term, long-term, and modern consequences.
Throughout history from the two major religions people still believe today.The crusades failed to achieve their goal but still left a bitter memory of religious hatred behind them.In Europe, crusaders sometimes put their anger on jews,massacring entire regions.This is why my opinion is that the crusaders caused a negative impact in history.
Christians and Muslims had fought in a series of wars for almost 200 years. The biggest motivation for Crusades between these two religions was to gain control over the Holy land, Jerusalem. The Christians wanted the holy land, "Jerusalem", because this is where Jesus and taught scriptures and biblical stories to citizens that wanted to listen. The Muslims wanted Jerusalem because this is where the prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven from the Temple Mount during his night journey. In this reading the biggest debate about the crusades is whether it was caused by religion devotion or by the desire for political and economic gain.
