SAMPLE EXCERPT:

[. . .] It brought about a revolution not only those directly involved in the religious wars but also affected those that found out about the finer tastes that were being enjoyed by the higher living standards of the eastern society

Impact on Education and Intellectual Growth

The cultural and overall sophistication the ravaging crusaders met with as a result of the continuous interaction with the astonishingly delightful lives being led by the eastern societies brought upon the western outlook of life a change of infinite measures, even as they were forced to reflect upon the comparatively appalling state of their own living standards. The fine etiquettes, the beautifully designed houses, the use of the shining marbles in the properly designed towns and cities left a lasting impact, which made them, learn life from a fresh new outlook. As if that was not enough, the scientific frontiers scaled in the east inspired and encouraged the knowledge seekers, especially in Italy, to begin with, and resulted in greater pursuits of realms of scientific endeavors. This period resulted in what is now called as the Renaissance, the period of time in western relevance whence learning was revitalized and reinvigorated

Impact on Trade and Development

The earliest effects of this period in the commercial and trading ventures were noticed in Italy. Genoa, Venice and Pisa flourished most prominently as the main suppliers of man and material to the crusaders. They also gained as the passageways of the now most sought after eastern goods to the western European society. Ports of Syria and Italy were now fast becoming trading centers. The merchant ships were crowding the Mediterranean. The invading crusaders carried the loot from vanquished towns and cities of the east to the west, proof of which can be seen in the modern museum houses. The most beautiful antiquity and artifacts that adorn museums are those that were spoils of the Crusading era

Impact on travel and Discovery

The discovery of the knowledge, beauty and refinement of the eastern world spurred the adventurous spirit in the western psyche and spawned the breed of voyagers and adventurers like, Marco Polo (Italy), Sir John Mandeville (England), Columbus, Magellan and Vasco de Gama (Dutch) and sought to supersede those in the east in their quest of riding the high seas and exploring unknown places
