Few recognize how the Knights of Christendom changed the course of world from the Crusades to the Age of Exploration, and the many crusades for social improvement that followed including the abolition of slavery, the crusades against blindness, malaria, polio; women's voting rights; the crusades for wellness (Wesley, Priessnitz, Keller, Kellog, Graham, Kneipp, Lust, Palmer, Still, etc.) and many others. Our Museums give you a unique opportunity to see this crusader history firsthand. »
