While Roman Emperors allowed the spread of Christianity throughout the empire, and the Muslim world grew in strength through the Arab conquests, the stage was set for a Holy War.

Jerusalem was conquered by the Caliphates, and Mongolian Muslims brought Islam to the gates of Europe. With the blessings of the Pope, Crusaders ventured to the Holy Land in the hope of reconquering Jerusalem.

It was a clash of cultures and spiritual zeal, bringing Israel to the forefront during centuries of bloody religious conflicts and battles.

The relics of the religious war era can be found everywhere in Israel and you can see them during our educational tour. But antique weaponry, fortresses and monuments are not all that survived from those troubled times.

The rivalry and animosity spawned by this period would form the grounding and basis for future conflicts.
