37. The Fall of Jerusalem and the Apocalypse

Heaven and Earth, and the new Jerusalem, Royal MS 19 B XV, f. 40v


First Crusade (1096-1099): After four years in our expedition, we were finally able to recover Jerusalem from the Muslims. However, the surrounding Muslim territories still remained a threat to us Christians, preventing us from paying pilgrimage to the Holy Land.


On July 15, 1099, one of the most heinous and barbarous war crimes in the long bloody history of the human race occurred on the soil of perhaps the most contested place on planet Earth: Jerusalem. The Christian crusaders proceeded to slaughter thousands of Jews and Muslims within the walls of Jerusalem in cold blood, possibly killing as many as 10,000 innocent people.

Godfrey of Bouillon, a French knight, was one of the commanders of the siege. He refused to become “King” of Jerusalem, but served briefly as its political leader.
