Over 900 years ago, thousands of Christians invaded the Middle East, intent on taking the Holy Land from the Muslims. The following 200 years were marked by a series of military campaigns known as the Crusades. Join us to follow the history of the Crusades from 1095 onwards. Castles, battles, religious clashes, Richard the Lionheart, the Assassins, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Saladin, the Knights Templar - all will feature as we examine one of the most interesting periods in history.

Customer Reviews

Very informative and well presented

Very informative.

I like the presenter's style.
Sharyn provides:
- good background and context for the events.
- good summaries
- interesting content
- occasional wit

I look forward to more episodes.

Lacking real depth

While Sharyn's overview is very listenable, and it will get you good passes in school (by writing what the teacher expects), it is lacking in depth. For alternative views and more obscure reference points from people writing at the time, I prefer the videos presented by "Real Crusades History".


This factual, well presented podcast is one of the joys I wait for each week. If you enjoy learning why the world is the way it is, this podcast best covers this interesting period.
