Crusades: The First Hand Account

Crusades: The First Hand Account | The Daliy Medieval Times newspaper | Scoop.it

As a Christian Knight, I witnessed the first crusade, first hand. With Peter the Hermit rallying Christians throughout Europe, the turnout of knights was remarkable. These knights fought in this war for different reasons. Some were there for the thrill of an adventure. Many were serfs, trying to escape life on the manor as a servant for the lords. Few were there to help their church. I, myself, was in for the adventure. There was a danger at every turn. We were fighting two enemies. The Turks were trying to invade Europe and the Muslims were causing a struggle for the takeover of Jerusalem. In the end, we came out on top. This crusade paved the path for the future of Holy Wars. In the now, the wars seemed foolish, but the rewards in the future will be greater than anything in our time. Our Catholic Churches will gain power and money. Trade will be able to reach the Middle East. Although many look down upon the Crusades, I believe that they will lead to a better future, for all Christians.

King John Friend Or Foe?

King John Friend Or Foe? | The Daliy Medieval Times newspaper | Scoop.it

Throughout the years, England has had many good kings and also many not – so – good Kings. Sadly, King John would fall under the category of not – so –good. King John made enemies with King Phillip II, Pope Innocent III, and his own people. He lost each struggle. He lost the war against King Philip II and was forced to give land back to France. Pope Innocent III excommunicated England, soon King John back down apon his issues with the church. King John waged expensive taxes and used his power in the wrong way. Rebellers forced him to sign the Magna Carta. The Magna Carta allows criminals to be judged by peers, as the Justice System of today uses. It also says that new taxes can’t be made or raised without consulting a council. Today, situations like that are brought to the Congress which is like a council. Through King John’s ruling only two useable things came out of his movements. These two things weren’t even his doing. He was forced by his people. Therefore, King John is one of the worst kings in English history, he started fights with people that were unnecessary, used his power in the wrong way, and was forced to do anything good.
