Victory And DefeatStreaming Video - 2013
In this program, Dr. Thomas Asbridge explains that the outcome of the Crusades was decided not in Jerusalem, but in Egypt. Using the latest archaeological evidence and eyewitness chronicles, he argues that it was a fearsome slave warrior from the Russian steppes - now forgotten in the West - who finally sealed the fate of the Christian warriors. Asbridge also challenges the idea that the Crusades sparked a clash of civilizations between Islam and the West that continues to this day.
