To be on the inside is to follow the norm. Norms are “behavioral regularities in a society as well as … behavioral expectations.” (Campennì, Andrighetto and Conte 17). Individuals learn to conform to personal space boundaries as a societal norm....   [tags: culture, ideals, norms, values]

However the Crusades can also be interpreted as a means for independent Christian rulers to demonstrate their piety, amass wealth through loot and enhance their prestige; all of which would be beneficial to the rule of their own territories....   [tags: Crusades, First Crusade, Alexios I Komnenos]
