Matthew Arnold’s Fire & Sword: The Crusades
Unit Price: $19.95
Arnold, Romero, and Mazza
The story of
the Christian Crusades to the Holy Land is one of the most fascinating events
of medieval history – and raises many serious questions today. There
is probably no institution in the history of man more unjustly maligned than
the Catholic Church-and no more powerful rhetorical device than the distortion
of the facts regarding the Crusades. Opponents of the Church demand to know,
"How can the Catholic Church be the true Church when she tortured and
killed Jews, Muslims and even other Christians?" "How can a truly
Christian Church be responsible for bloody religious wars, when Christ said,
'Turn the other cheek'?" "How can this Church, with the blood of
millions on her hands dare to condemn 'a woman's right to choose'?"
Myths and Misconceptions
In the fascinating new DVD, Fire and Sword: The Crusades, Catholic convert and EWTN Radio personality Matthew Arnold pits the common accusations about these historical events against the findings of modern scholarship and what he uncovers will amaze you! In this informative presentation, he reveals that those who have a stake in keeping the myths and misconceptions alive are actively obscuring the best scholarship from both religious and secular historians.
Fire and Sword
begins with an introduction to many virtually unknown facts about the Middle
Ages, and exposes the common misconceptions about the period. Through the
works of many leading medieval scholars Matthew demonstrates that, "If
we judge the past by its fruits, we'll soon discover that the Middle Ages
weren't so dark (and Catholics not so barbaric!) as so-called history suggests."
In the presentation
on the Crusades, you'll discover the true motives and methods of the Christian
Crusaders and the nature of their struggle with Islam. Following the example
of the best current scholarship, modern medievalists going directly to primary
sources for their research. They've discovered that Protestant and secular
bias has rejected out-of-hand, the well-documented motives of the Crusaders
in favor of a projection of their own anti-Catholicism. Surprisingly, the
supply of written records from the Middle Ages is both large and largely ignored.
Even many Catholics will be surprised by what they contain!
You'll have your
eyes opened to new perspectives and, perhaps most importantly, you'll more
readily understand why certain forces (even within the Catholic Church herself)
are so fervently dedicated to keeping the old myths alive. Fire and Sword:
The Crusades explodes the many myths surrounding these crucial episodes in
Salvation History and will positively empower you to better defend the Church
that Christ established.
