Key events of Crusades Pope Urban’s speech The capture of Jerusalem Founding of Crusader states Loss of Jerusalem to Saladin Sack of Constantinople by western Crusaders

Battle of Manzikert In 1071 the Byzantine forces were defeated by the Turks at the battle of Manzikert. The Byzantines had been battling the Turks for some time and now decided to turn to the West for help.

Alexius I The Byzantine Emperor Alexius I wrote a letter to the Pope asking for help against the Turks. This letter eventually led to the First Crusade.

The Crusades  Essentially, the Crusades were a series of wars over control of the Holy Land and of the Holy city of Jerusalem.  They were a spiritual, political, economic, and ideological battle between the Christian World and the Muslim World.

The First Crusade  The First Crusade was called by Pope Urban II.  The letter he had received from Alexius I claimed that the Turks were harassing Christian pilgrims who were attempting to visit Jerusalem.  The Pope seized upon this opportunity to raise an army and go reclaim the holy land.

The Council of Clermont While attending a Council at Clermont in 1095, Pope Urban called a meeting of the people. The Pope called the Muslims Infidels, or unbelievers. He stated that it was the Christian duty of the Nobles and Knights of Europe to go and reclaim the holy land because “God Willed it.”

The Early Crusades The official Crusading army reached the city of Jerusalem in After a siege they captured the city. During the siege and battle the Crusaders slaughtered almost everyone in the city including many Jews and Orthodox Christians.

Crusader States  After the capture of Jerusalem, the Crusaders established Crusader States in the Holy Land.  These cities represented a Christian presence in the area and became centers for trade with the west.

Saladin While the first Crusade was successful in taking Jerusalem it was recaptured by the Muslim general Saladin in – Unlike what the Christians had done, Saladin showed mercy to the inhabitants of the city. This led to the Third Crusade where Richard the Lionhearted and Philip Augustus of France were defeated. Richard negotiated a treaty with Saladin to allow for pilgrims to visit the city.

Later Crusades The Western armies were never successful at capturing Jerusalem after the First Crusade. During the Fourth Crusade the Crusading armies became involved in a Byzantine dispute and attacked and captured the city. The Western leaders held the city from 1204 until the Byzantine threw them out in – The Western Christians destroyed churches, icons, buildings, and statues—destroying much of the Byzantine culture in the process.

Constantinople becomes Istanbul In 1453 the Ottoman Turks captured the city of Constantinople. The city was renamed Istanbul.

The Children’s Crusade In 1212 a young French boy named Nicholas of Cologne announced that the Crusaders had failed because they were not innocent. Thousands of young people joined him and went to southern Italy to sail to the Holy land. The sailors there promised to take them to the holy land, but many were shipwrecked or were taken to N. Africa and sold into slavery.

Positive and Negative Effects of the Crusades Positive: – The Crusades increased trade between east and west. – This increase in trade is thought to be one of the events which led to the Renaissance, or rebirth of Europe in the 15 th century. Negative – The Crusades led to a legacy of bitterness between the Christian and Muslim world. – They hurt the Byzantine Empire.

Economic effects  Demand in Europe for Middle Eastern products  Stimulated production of goods to trade with Middle East  Encouraged use of credit and banking

Economic concepts  Church rule against usury and the banks’ practice of charging interest helped to secularize northern Italy.  Letters of credit served to expand the supply of money and expedite trade.  New accounting and bookkeeping practices (use of Arabic numerals) were introduced.
