This seminar is an exploration of the Crusades, a series of military campaigns spanning the 11th to 13th Centuries sanctioned by the Roman Catholic Church with the goal of reclaiming Jerusalem and other holy sites in the Middle East. T
As a seminar format, participants are welcome to come and learn about the history of a dark time in western Christianity. While it is a broad overview, my hope is to dispel some common misconceptions. This course will take a critical in-depth look. While this will be a warts-and-all course, my hope is to help learn from this time period, its influences on later history, and a cautionary tale.
This seminar is Part 2 of a 2-part seminar. Part 1 dealt with the development of Christianity from its earliest days to the eve of the Crusades. It is not be necessary to have attended Part 1 in order to attend Part 2.
Facilitator: John Crowdis The Rev. John Crowdis has been serving as the minister at St. Matthew’s United Church since July of 2014. A graduate of the Vancouver School of Theology, John is enthusiastic about bringing university-level Biblical scholarship and history in a way that is accessible to everyone.
