The Council of Nablus takes place. Ecclesiastical and secular lords meet in the crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem to establish religious and secular laws for the kingdom.

The mix of ecclesiastical and secular lords means that the Council of Nablus isn't exactly an church council but it also isn't exactly a royal court either. The Council of Nablus is a mix of the two, addressing both church and secular issues.

Religious issues dominate, though, because the Kingdom of Jerusalem had for several years been suffering from a number of problems and the leaders decided that the cause must be the sins of the people. Thus certain laws must be established in order to address those sins and bring kingdom back into God's grace.
