Christ & Baha'u'llah by -G. Townshend- 2 Para

Then.. in 1094.. the Pope.. called.. the faithful.. to drive the Saracen hosts out of the sacred Christian shrine.. Europe lept up at his word and for well-nigh two hundred years.. this.. war.. continued.. The Christians ultimately withdrew in ignominious and complete defeat and Islam remained in possession of all the Holy Places she had owned before. (47:4)

It was Europe.. and not Arabia which gained from the struggle (of the Crusades), for the Crusades provided yet another channel through which knowledge.. flowed into Europe.. (48:1)
