The Crusades. Part Four - The Last Crusades

September 13, 2019

In this Season of Esoteric Reads, I'm reading "Extraordinary Popular Delusions and The Madness of Crowds" by Charles Mackay, first published in 1841. On tonight's episode, we continue with Mackay's chapter discussing the Crusades, this time with a mega blow-out double two-for-one Crusade deal with an extra special bonus. This episode covers the fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth Crusades. But wait, there's more... we're also covering The Children's Crusade, which wasn't really a Crusade, and more like slavery with extra steps.
