Maps illustrating the trajectory of a series of early military campaigns initiated by the medieval Church between 1096–1192, aiming at liberating the "Holy Land" (roughly located between the Mediterranean Sea and the Eastern Bank of the Jordan River) from Muslim control. Those were known as Crusades and resulted in establishing several Roman Catholic Kingdoms in the Near East (most notably - the County of Edessa, the Principality of Antioch, the County of Tripoli, and the Kingdom of Jerusalem.)
