-->'''Bishop, Patriarch of Jerusalem:''' Who do you think you are? Will you alter the world? Does making a man a knight make him a better fighter?
-->'''Balian:''' Yes.

** The Templar Knights being the most fervent and fanatical of all Crusaders to utterly suicidal levels also smacks of this. In truth, after the foundation of the Crusader States, the military orders settled comfortably into expanding their wealth and power through trade, not least of all with the Islamic world. For them to upset the tentative peace is unlikely. In fact, it was new arrivals from Europe that were more likely to cause problems, rather than knights who had been there a long time.

him.

* ItIsDehumanizing: When Guy de Lusignan sees Balian sitting at dinner with other noted officials like Sibylla and Tiberias, he refers to Balian as “this”.

%%** {{Inverted}}, surprisingly. As mentioned above, Reynald's atrocities were toned down in the film, or at the very least, censored.

** In an earlier secene, those same Templars actually imply that Tiberias is a blasphemer simply for suggesting that they should avoid war because victory is not guaranteed. (Fortunately for everyone in the army, at this point Baldwin is still alive and he agrees with Tiberias.)
