Quotes from the First Crusade
“An atrocious torment
began for the besieged
Franj (Crusaders). They
went so far as to drink the
blood of their mounts and
their own urine. They
were seen looking
desperately up into the
sky, hoping for a few drops
of rain in those early
October days”


“The Franj arrived at
dawn. It was carnage. For
three days they put
people to the sword,
killing more than a
hundred thousand people
and taking many
prisoners.”
“In Ma’arra our troops
(the Crusaders) boiled
pagan adults in cooking
pots; they impaled
children on spits and
devoured them grilled”
