Crusades – Destruction
Join Terry Jones, founding member of Monty Python, author and medieval expert, for this chronicle of the Crusades. One of history’s most epic adventures, the Crusades began as a holy mission to liberate Jerusalem, and became the largest mass migration in European history. When they ended 200 years later, the Crusades had created a mythology of knights and chivalry, and left a legacy of distrust between East and West that continues to shape our world today. Filmed on location throughout Europe and the Middle East, this acclaimed production brings the Crusades to life with an army of innovative techniques, including animated mosaics, restaged battles and extraordinary computer graphics. Produced in consultation with the world’s foremost experts on history and theology, it’s a witty and thoroughly fascinating account of one of civilization’s most legendary and least understood chapters.
