Jerusalem Delivered

1581

Why is it canonical?

Jerusalem Delivered told the story of the first crusade, featuring Godfrey of Bouillon as a hero. The historical subject matter resonated with Europeans who saw the Ottomans conquer parts of Europe during their own time. The work was hugely popular and influenced many other works, including plays, operas, paintings, and other poems.
