Crusading, the Crusader and the Christian Order - Part 02 - Early Christian Crusading and Late Antiquity

SKU: 3360D-02


Christianity made the crusading spirit into a battle for the construction of a soul that was fit to live eternally with God, and the creation of a social order that could aid such an ascent to the Divine. Dr. John Rao shows how Christianity's appearance on the scene unleashed bitter hatred on the part of a "Grand Coalition of the Status Quo" which did not want to allow such a Crusade for a supernatural purpose to win out over the hunt for mundane "success." Christians had to fight a battle versus paganism and satisfaction with a limited and drab materialist existence simultaneously.
