Crusades

The Crusades were a series of holy wars by western Christians to recapture the Holy Land from the Muslims. The Crusades began in 1096 and ended in the late 13th century. The term Crusade was originally applied to European efforts to retake the city of Jerusalem, which was sacred to Christians as the site of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Thousands of men, and even women, ranging from knights to peasants marched in the Crusades. Many military religious orders combined spirituality with martial ideas of knighthood and chivalry patterned on monasticism. The most famous groups were the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem, also called the Hospitalers, and the Poor Knights of Christ and the Temple of Solomon, called the Templars. These orders of Crusading knights tried to mediate between the Churchs concerns and the interests of various princes. The Templar knights and Hospitaler knights began to gain popularity and support as they gained wealth. They extended the politics of Western Europe, built and fortified great castles, and sat on the councils of rulers.

Medieval Collectibles carries many types of Crusader helms like the Crusader great helm, Hospitaler helmets, Crusader sugarloaf helm, Templar helms, and the Crusader bascinet, among others. Many Crusader helmets had small slits for the eyes and mouth, which provided poor ventilation and line of sight. Crusader knight helms were usually put on just before battle because the thick steel used made the design very heavy.
