Crusaders

EtymologyEdit

Capitalised by Mills, The History of the Crusades (1820) when referring to a specific campaign ("The third and fourth Crusades" p. 95) but not when referring to the general concept ("the clergy successfully preached the crusade through all the German state" p. 87). More at crusade.

NounEdit

Crusade (plural Crusades)

  1. One of a series of ostensibly religious campaigns by Christian forces from the 11th to the 13th century, mostly to capture the Holy Land from the Muslims who occupied it.
