Often students ask, “Why do I have to study history if it already happened?” A teacher’s response is often quoting the famous words of George Santayana when he said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” That is your task, what are the real lessons that we must never forget from the Crusades? For if we should, we are forever condemned to wallow in our failures…
Or why are we doing this
The Crusades in Western civilization is a period often romanticized in stories that are just as popular today as they were years ago. Stories about Robin Hood, Richard I (Lionheart), El Cid, the Knights Templar, and the list could go on who fought against the Muslims and were heroes for Christian Europe. The decree by Pope Urban II to free the holy land from the Muslims was seen as a plea from God to make Jerusalem safe for Christians and for knights to make their mark to get into heaven. But what kind of lasting impact did these series of wars really have on the Europeans? More importantly how have these conflicts helped perpetuation stereotypes and prejudices that continue today after more recent historical events like 9/11?
My Lord, how long do we have to work on this?
Congratulations! You did it, you have done the research and answered the questions about the Crusades. Hopefully you even realized the impact that event in history had and the importance of why students like yourselves are asked to study it. You have even learned to cooperate effectively with others in your class in putting your final presentation together. Now remember the lessons you have learned from history to take with you as you venture into the future and face the hurdles that lie ahead. You are ready to be chivalrous lords and ladies that know how to live and learn!
