Christianity in the High Middle Ages - Part 07- The Pilgrimage to God and the Crusades

SKU: 3226D-07


The ravages of feudal soldiers in the West made the task of Christianizing and Romanizing the military a primary one. This was tackled by offering them the defensive role of guarding pilgrims to Compostella in Spain and teaching them how they could "take up their Cross" and "Crusade" for the protection of Christians against Moslems. Dr. John Rao describes the idealism and practical difficulties of the venture. Taken from: Christianity in the High Middle Ages - 1995 VonHildebrand Institute
