The Crusades • The Crusades were a series of military expeditions made between the 11th and 13th centuries by western European Christian armies, against those they regarded as enemies of Christendom.
The Crusades • The main goal of the Crusades was to recapture the ‘Holy Land’ )(the lands sacred to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam in Palestine) from Muslim control. • Eight major campaigns were launched to achieve this aim. However, during this period there were also dozens of minor Crusades directed against Muslim Spain; the Ottoman Turks in the Balkans; the pagan Slavs of the Baltic; and heretics within western Europe, such as the Cathars.
The Inquisition "Anyone who attempts to construe a personal view of God which conflicts with Church dogma must be burned without pity." - Pope Innocent III • The Inquisition was an ecclesiastical court and process of the Roman Catholic Church setup for the purpose towards the discovery and punishment of heresy which wielded immense power and brutality in medieval and early modern times.
The Inquisition • The Inquisitions function was principally assembled to repress all heretics of rights, depriving them of their estate and assets which became subject to the ownership of the Catholic treasury, with each relentlessly sought to destroy anyone who spoke, or even thought differently to the Catholic Church.
Inquisition Procedure • At root the word Inquisition signifies as little of evil as the primitive "inquire," or the adjective inquisitive, but as words, like persons, lose their characters by bad associations, so "Inquisition" has become infamous and hideous as the name of an executive department of the Roman Catholic Church.
Inquisition Procedure • All crimes and all vices are contained in this one word Inquisition. Murder, robbery, arson, outrage, torture, treachery, deceit, hypocrisy, cupidity, holiness. No other word in all languages is so hateful as this one that owes its abhorrent preeminence to its association with the Roman Church.
