Real Crusades History #329. Don't forget the Real Crusades History website!
Christmas, 1099. Solemnly, the Christians of Bethlehem lead the crusaders into the ancient Church of the Nativity, where they bring the Latins before the cave revered as the site of Christ’s birth. Kneeling, the knights pray at the spot where the infant Jesus came into the world. We can only imagine the intensity of the moment. These men had fought and bled through years of unspeakable trials. Now, at last, they had come to that corner of the world where the mysteries of their faith began.
