Crusaders - Costly Battle for Both Sides

Crusaders at Jerusalem was a costly battle for both sides

On reaching Jerusalem, and capturing it, leaders of the Crusade use a mosque to give thanks (Te Deum) for their victory.  It was a costly one, not just for the Crusaders but for the people whom they conquered.

Gustave Dore imagined how this event may have appeared when it happened (hundreds of years before he created this drawing).  Among all the works which Dore illustrated are 100 drawings about the Crusades.  They are included in Story of the Crusades, by James P. Boyd.

Dore called this work:

Te Deum after Victory

Adopting a mosque as their church, the army leaders sing psalms praising God for their victory.
