Jerusalem During The Crusades (1099 - 1187 A.D.)

Auther : Joseph Nessim Youssef

The article deals with the political, economic and social conditions of the city of jersusalem since the crusaders captured it the year A.D). 1099 and until the time Saladin recovered it in the year A.D 1187. It tackles diverse important cases concerning which opinions differed. In some of them, modern historians have not reached a decisive view. Among these cases are the definitions of ancient and modern historians of the Crusades, the different points of view round the motives for their rise, and their being a link in the series of cultural and political struggle extending between the two halves of the world since the ancient times and up till now. Iam going to point out how far all the above-mentioned cases have had an effect on the subject of study.

Among the most important points dealt with in the research work, too, are the elements of population in jerusalem and its vassal states, the characteristics of the latin rule and its vassal states, the balance of power in the struggle between the Arabis and the Crusaders and all lthe concepts related to it. Among these cases are: the situation of Jerusalem under the latin rule, the poulains and the newcomers from the West, the policty of latin settlement in jerusalem and its satellites and its consequences, the competition between Nur al-Din Muhammed and Amalric I the latin king of Jerusalem to occupy Egypt, No less important is the Arab awakening and unity and the moderation of the balance of power for the interest of the arabs, the fruits of which were the Battle of Hattin and the restoration of Jerusalem (october A.D 1187 from the hands of the Crusaders.
