The commonly accepted opinion of Christopher Columbus is that he is responsible for almost everything that went wrong in the New World. Columbus and the Quest for Jerusalem challenges this belief - that Columbus was not led to find a western route to the Orient to gain vast wealth in gold for the Spanish crown but instead to help fund a new crusade to take Jerusalem from the Muslims. Rather than portraying him as an avaricious gold and glory hunter, Delaney puts Columbus back into the context of his times and shows him to be a man of deep religion conviction, endurance and passion."@en ;
