Identify the advanced civilizations that were flourishing in Explain the causes and effects of the Crusades

A series of wars which began in 1096, Christians battled Muslims for control of lands in the Middle East.

In 1050, as Western Europe was just emerging from a period of isolation, many other civilizations were thriving elsewhere. The religion of Islam stretched from present-day Spain to India, and Muslim traders and scholars spread goods and ideas even farther.

Closer to Western Europe, the Byzantine empire – the former eastern Roman empire – was generally prosperous and united. In the 1050s, the Seljuk Turks invaded the Byzantine empire. The Turks had migrated from Central Asia into the Middle East, where they converted to Islam.

By 1071, the Seljuks had overrun most Byzantine lands in Asia Minor (present day Turkey). The Seljuks also extended their power over the Holy Land, Jerusalem and other places in Palestine where Christians believe Jesus lived and preached. The conflict prevented Christian pilgrims from traveling to the Holy Land.

The Byzantine emperor Alexius I urgently asked Pope Urban II for Christian Knights to help him fight the Muslim Turks. Although Roman popes and Byzantine emperors were longtime rivals, Urban agreed.

By 1096, thousands of knights were on their way to the Holy land. As the crusading spirit swept through Western Europe, armies of ordinary men and women inspired by fiery preachers left for the Holy Land, too. Few returned.

The factors that motivated the Crusade: Religious zeal Many knights hoped to win wealth and land. Some crusaders sought to escape troubles at home. Others yearned for adventure.

The pope, too had mixed motives. Urban hoped to increase his power in Europe and perhaps heal the schism, or split, between the Roman and Byzantine churches. Urban also hoped that the Crusades would set Christian knights to fight the Muslims instead of one another.

Only the First Crusade came close to achieving its goals. After a long and bloody campaign, Christian Knights captured Jerusalem in The Crusades continued, off and on, for over 200 years. The crusaders divided their captured lands into four small states, called crusade states.

The Muslims repeatedly sought to destroy these Christian states, prompting Europeans to launch new crusades. In 1187, Jerusalem fell to the Muslims On the Third Crusade, Europeans failed to retake Jerusalem. After negotiation, Saladin, the Muslim leader, did reopen the holy city to Christian pilgrims.

During the Fourth Crusade, the crusaders were diverted from fighting Muslims to fighting other Christians. After helping merchants from the northern Italian city of Venice defeat their Byzantine trade rivals in 1204, crusaders captured and looted Constantinople, the Byzantine capital.

The Crusades left a bitter legacy of religious hatred. In the Middle East, both Christians and Muslims committed appalling atrocities in the name of religion. The crusaders arrived in the Middle East at a time when various Muslim regimes were struggling among themselves for control of the region. These groups rallied together to fight the invaders, and began to unify the region from Egypt to Syria.

The Crusades helped quicken the pace of changes in Europe that were already underway. European Economies Expand Even before the Crusade, Europeans had developed a taste for luxuries from the Byzantine empire. Returning crusaders brought even more fabrics, spices, and perfumes. Trade increased and expanded. Merchants in Venice and other northern Italian cities had built large fleets to carry crusaders to the Holy land.

Effects on Monarchs and Church The Crusaders helped to increase the power of monarchs. These rulers won new rights to collect taxes in order to support the Crusaders. Some rulers such as the French king Louis IX and the English king Richard I, called the Lion-Heart, led Crusades, which added greatly to their prestige.

The Crusades did not end the split between the Roman and Byzantine churches as Pope Urban had hoped. Instead, Byzantine resentment against the West hardened as a result of the Fourth Crusade.

Contacts with the Muslim world led Christians to realize that millions of people lived in regions they had never even known existed. Soon, a few curious European had left to explore far-off places such as India and China. In 1271, a young Venetian, Marco Polo, set out for China. After many years in China, he returned to Venice and wrote a book about the wonders of Chinese civilizations. The experiences of crusaders and of travelers like Marco Polo expanded European horizons.
