Even with this reputation, it’s not the only thing they did wrong. A different reason why the Crusades were negative is because they would kill the innocent. In Document 7, it states, “-the crusading knights were often abused and co,,ottoes atrocities against Eastern Orthodox Christians, Jews and Muslims in the areas through which they passed.” This “-made them hated by all groups throughout the region.

Another thing that the Emperor did that led to his downfall was his obsession with his religion and the Syrian sun god that he frequently worshipped. He enlisted the sun God Elagabalus to Jupitar level and went on to build a temple of the god and make senators watch him dance on the altar of the God all day. This was not very pleasing to the senators. He even moved the sacred relics of the Roman religion to the temple so that all the Roman people were forced to worship his god if they wished to worship anyone else. My sources prove this by saying, “The most sacred relics from the Roman religion were transferred from their respective shrines to the Elagabalium, including the emblem of the Great Mother, the fire of Vesta, the Shields of the Salii and the Palladium, so that no other god could be worshipped except in company with Elagabal.Augustan History, Life of Elagabalus”.

The people had to suffer so much that the people, who once worshipped Apollo as their everything, started saying things like “Nowhere Apollo’s golden glory now [and] / the gods go down” (996-97). Through this excerpt Sophocles indirectly showed the influence of the king on his people because if their king didn’t act hubristically, then the plague would have never hit the city and the people of Thebes would have never questioned the god. This leads the reader back to the theme as ignorance in Oedipus has spread within his kingdom, which is blinding the Thebans from seeing the truth as Apollo has already said that the plague was due to the doings someone from Thebes, yet the people blame god for the
“ Stop denying your heart, and what a terrible decision in the first place to go against me even if you 're one hundred times more powerful than me for a stupid fight you lost!” Nintendrone then threw Sonio back down to Earth with no power at all.
