This looks like it will be a good movie.

It looks interesting. Directed by the same person who directed Gladiator. :D So, it seems promising. :P

Don't you know history. During the Crusades we fought to take OUR holy land bank, but after the few first ones we starting getting greedy. During the last Crusade we through Italy (Vince to be percise) and instead of fullfilling our duty to God we plunder Vince (sorry for the misspelling), and never left italy.

Yes, I do know the history. I wasn't sure what you were talking about. Your post wasn't clear. The correct spelling is Venice. :P

I assume he meant Christians from Western Europe. Lucky him, if a history teacher was here, Darth DBII would get poor grade. :P

And poor, short description of history of crusades. :P Of course, crusades history is pretty complicated.

Well, i can't remember much about that history class. (Except a lot of plundering from various cultures.) But now i got the movie to refresh my memory.

Speaking of this topic, does anyone know where I can get a highly abridged version of the events of the Bible? Preferably in the correct order...

Something short and undetailed...like:

God created Adam, then took a rib from him to create Eve. Adam ate an apple from the forbidden tree, and both were expelled from the Garden of Eden.

I don't know of any 'abridged' versions. Perhaps you should look for a kids illustrated version. That's the closest thing I know of.

Though why search for an abridged version? Curious.
