Effects of Religion 2 Effects of Religion Religion affects people in numerous ways. Religion can make people extremely self-righteous and charitable. However, this same self-righteousness can potentially lead to extremism; this may affect a myriad lives that are not even directly connected to the religion. Two momentous events that have occurred in the world as a result of religion are The Crusades and the 9/11 attacks. Religious extremism as pointed out above eventually led to The Crusades, whose original purpose was to recapture Jerusalem by the Christians; it was under the rule of Muslims. The Christians viewed themselves as the defenders of a crusading religion. The Crusades , which was essentially a group of religious battles, took place from 1095-1291. The Crusades had far-reaching political, economic, and social impacts, some of which have lasted into contemporary times.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
