Last Stand of the Crusaders

59 minutes

'Non nobis, Domine, non nobis, sed Nomini tuo da gloriam', Knights Templar

1291, and in the redoubt of Acre the Crusaders prepare to make a final stand against the might of the Mameluke Sultan of Egypt. After 200 years in the Holy Land the Frankish hold on Palestine is at an end and few will come to save what is left of the Christian possessions. The Templars and the Hospitallers are still there, the former in their Lion Fortress and standing firm. Yet most in Acre are cowed by the sight of the great Muslim army. All that is left is prayer and futility. Jerusalem is gone and soon the writ and power of the Crusader will be but a memory.
