The Crusades – the Why, the What, and the How
May 6 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Lourdes University Lifelong Learning presents The Crusades – the Why, the What, and the How with Paul Mueller
9:30 – 11:30 am, Thursday
May 6 – 27 (4 weeks)
Many people have heard of the Crusades, but what is not widely known is what these wars were meant to accomplish and what the outcomes were. This course will cover the history of the Crusades, how they started, and delve into their original purpose, their execution, and the results. We will talk about who was involved (including a side story that involves Robin Hood) and what the participants intended, which was not always what the popes anticipated!
Paul Mueller is an adjunct instructor of theology at Lourdes University. He received his Master of Arts degree in theology at Lourdes in 2011, and he is continuing his studies in pursuit of his doctorate in theology at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. He is an active member of St. Joseph Parish in Sylvania, Ohio.
