Later ended in 115 years making the year 1291. The crusades were a fight for Holy Land between the Christians in Europe and the Muslims in the Middle East. The Christians were trying to gain power of the City of Jeruselum and North Africa. There are five documents that happen to be a social impact. There is also three documents for the economic impacts.

Christians and Muslims participated in the fight in the Middle East. Massacring entire communities occurred when the crusaders turned their furry towards the Jews because of their loss in the war. This makes it a social impact. br / br /

span classtab/spanIn document three, another social impact, the author describes the motivation behind the Crusaders desire to fight in these battles. Some reasons the Crusades attracted the people was the interest only in fighting for Christianity while others looked for adventure, estates, or for commercial opportunities. Some people only fought for their own freedom. So, they either died trying to free themselves.. or died trying. They had to be gone a year and day in war to be free. ldquoWe usually think of the Crusades as a great religious movement in which gallant knights of christendom tried to win back the Holy Land from the Muslimsrdquo (Document3.) A negative social impact from document 5 says, ldquoFirst, the long struggle between Islam and Christendom and the example of persecution set by Christian kings and prelates (bishops) left an inheritance of deep bitterness relations between Muslims and their Christian and Jewish subjects worsened.rdquo Economic impacts of the Crusades were very good. ldquoThey later used those fleets to open new markets in the crusaderrsquos statesrdquo (Document2.) ldquoOur words sugar, cotton, rice, and muslin, which were borrowed from Arabic, show the range of trade good involvedrdquo (Document2.) This meant they had god trade and markets to keep their economy going strong ldquoEven after the Muslims had recaptured the city of Acre, Italian merchants kept these trade routes openrdquo (Document2.) A positive economic impact ldquoSecond, European merchants, primarily Italians, had established communities in the crusader statesrdquo (Document5.) The change in the medieval system of trade from products in the East desired. ldquoWhen the crusaders returned to Europe, they brought back such things as spices, sugar, and silkrdquo (Document8.) The spices kept the food from spoiling and the silk replaced the wool in clothing of many lords and ladies. br / br /

span classtab/spanThe Crusaders next or new life for serfs, they fought for adventure, freedom, and moral. The moral is if you died in the crusades, you went to heaven. They could gain wealth and power by being religious and fighting in the war. IF you conquered anything as a serf, you could have it by stealing it legally. Knights and lords were a part of the Feudal agreement which meant they had to go but were promised power, wealth, and land. If they died in war, they were also promised to go to Heaven. The pope told thousands itrsquos okay to fight and to kill people. br / br /

span classtab/spanTheir religion was to heal the divide in the church and for knights to stop fighting each other. They wanted to free Holy land of the Turks and like the other Crusaders, gain wealth, power, and land. The crusades have had a long impact on the economic and social systems of the eastern and western world. /body
