The Canons of Persecution
Lecture no. 7 from the course: Years that Changed History: 1215
Taught by Professor Dorsey Armstrong | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses
Continue your study of the Fourth Lateran Council with this examination of the “canons of persecution.” Whereas the canons you studied in Lecture 6 primarily affected Christians, the canons in this lecture were directed specifically at non-Christians—particularly Muslims and Jews. After exploring these persecution canons, consider the background for the Crusades.
