Storyline

In this series, Terry Jones presents the recounting of the religious wars for control of the "Holy Lands" waged by Christian Europe against the Islamic world. In addition, Terry Jones recreates specific aspects of those events by exploring the lives of pivotal figures, the technology and the politics of the era. Furthermore, Terry Jones also shows how these acts of religious bigotry at its worst have led to many of the political and ethnic problems we have today.

Right depiction of events
23 September 2012 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

Today I watched this movie second time.(First was in 1995). I always remain a student of Medieval days Crusades, their impacts and relation to current worlds.

Terry Jones did a great job to gather information from all available sources and presented them without any prejudice. He combined both of his interests, History & Media in this Great Piece of Art. Best part of this series is his neutral view point of all the events. Script is strong a research is thorough. He tried best to show how use of different warfare in Medieval time, their evolution and techniques to use.

I am giving him 9 out of due to the reason that this movie doesn't link Medieval day crusades with current conflicts of civilization. There might be an explanation as this movie was developed in post 9/11 scenario.

Still it this series is good first hand knowledge from a historian, for anyone who wants to know how current conflict of civilization started.

Great to Watch
