"In this paper, a film proposal is presented about the Crusades. It looks at how the siege of Antioch began in 1097 and lasted for two years and how the city had some of the most infamous battle scenes and stratagems, which would outshine any of the latter battles or conquests that would follow. "

From the Paper:

"During the First Crusades Bohemond of Tarentum was a pivotal and important figure in gaining access to the "Holy Land" during the early part of the 12th century. Conceptualized by Pope Urban II in 1095, the Crusades become an important part of western historical warfare (Stearns 140), which brought Bohemond and his Christian compatriots to take away Jerusalem from the Muslims in the name of Christ. The "Siege of Antioch" was a critical, violent, and important battle, which represents the apogee of success for the Crusaders in taking the Levant from the Arabs. After Pope Urban had sent off Bohemond and the other princes from various regents in France and Germany, there was great hardship that awaited them. Not only did they have to fight the Arabs, but they also had to deal with Alexius I, the emperor of the Byzantine Empire."
