The picture illustrates the siege of Antioch by Christian killers in the first Crusade in 1098. The book in front of me has a story about the towers being emptied by virtue of treachery.
Before long there was another battle and siege, with the Christians now inside; then they broke the siege and won a battle. And so it continues to this day, men killing men, women and children, for no sufficient reason.
