Caption: Medieval crusades. Whole folio (page) and border illustrations from the 14th-century Luttrell Psalter showing a scene from the Crusades. At bottom, a mounted knight in the royal arms of England is shown using a lance to unseat a Saracen from his horse. The Crusades to the Holy Land by Christian Europe took place from the 11th to 13th centuries. Two grotesques are shown in the right-hand border. The Luttrell Psalter is an illuminated manuscript that was produced in East Anglia, England, and dates from around the period 1325-1335. The text is in Latin, while the marginal illustrations show saints, Bible stories, historical scenes, and everyday rural life.
