Reply To: How should we deal with the topic of the Crusades, both in our own thinking and in engagement with Muslims?

Hey Maria, I think you make a great point about the importance of owning our history. Ignoring or denying the atrocities of Christians during the Crusades alienates others and puts us further away from the possibility of interfaith dialogue. Crusaders massacred Jews and Muslims, they even were warry of Orthodox Christians- reinforcing an archaic idea that only homogenous groups could co-exist.
