This program examines the impact of Islam on Jerusalem, including the construction of the Dome of the Rock, and the crusaders' attempts to win the city back for Christendom. The video brings to life some often-overlooked personalities whose impact still resonates today, such as Al Hakim and Queen Melisende, as well as Saladin and Richard the Lionheart and their notorious stand-off. Ending in the 13th century, the program also looks at King Frederick II, whose groundbreaking power-sharing deal prefigured the tortuous peace negotiations of our own times.
