As Depicted on Film
Crusades As Depicted on Film
For the past 1000 years since the Christian crusades into the Middle East, the crusades and crusaders have consistently been positively portrayed in Christian countries. But, since the American-British invasion of Iraq and its religious undertones, crusading has begun to lose its appeal. Let's follow this journey through the 1989 Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, with Harrison Ford and Sean Connery, the 2006 Ridley Scott film, Kingdon of Heaven, starring Orlando Bloom, and the 2018 Robin Hood starring Taron Egerton and Jamie Foxx.
