Crusader Rule Of The Holy Land Came To An End This Day 726-Years Ago; May 28, 1291.
That was the fall of Acre,
a strategic sea-port,
in the North of the Holy Land.
An event that goes uncommented now given that so much water has flown under the bridges on the Tiber since then — over 700-year ago.
But, a turning point in both political and religious history.
The crusades were quite the thing. The fall of Acre was a body blow to those in the West.
