Join us in welcoming the return of Dr Nicholas Morton as he delivers the fourth, and last talk, of a series of talks on the Crusades.
The conquest of Constantinople, capital of the Byzantine Empire, by the armies of the Fourth Crusade in 1204 represents a crucial turning point in history. It was a crucial moment in the long-term decline of the Byzantine Empire and also a never-forgotten calamity in relations between the Catholic and Orthodox Christian faiths. But how did it come about? How did a crusading army destined to assault Alexandria in Egypt end up veering wildly off course and assaulting the heavily fortified capital of the Christian Byzantine Empire?
