Transcript of The Crusades and The Flowering of The Middle ages
Calling the First Crusade
Fulcher of Chartres, Pope Urban II’s Speech at Clermont (1095)
Gregorian reforms enhanced the power and prestige of the head of the western Christian community. Pope Urban II embraced his new role and directed it towards freeing Jerusalem and the Holy Land from the Seljuk Turks. A part of the city had been seized by them to expand the Asia Minor. The Byzantine emperor needed more military help and called upon the Pope for help. Urban II delivered a speech to a large crowd in Clermont, France in 1905. He urged them to put down their weapons and use them against the “infidel” in the Holy Land. Cleric Fulcher of Chartres was one of the hundred that were present during the speech and was also a chaplain for the crusade leaders. He wrote about his experiences including what he heard during the speech by Pope Urban II. Fulcher wrote a three volume chronicle which is considered to be the most reliable.
Pope Urban II stated that he has a mission from God for them. He asks that they be faithful shepherds of God and if they listen to him and fulfills their divine duty than God would reward them. The Turks and Arabs have attacked and conquered the territory of Romania as far west as the shore of the Mediterranean. They have occupied more and more lands of those Christians. As Christian people they should take back what has been taken from them. Urban tells the people to adjust all faults and become purified. He asks for them to go out and try to correct sins in others. Persuade all people to carry aid quickly to those Christians and destroy the race.
Urban reveals that as long as you die fighting against the pagans in battle; for God you will have full remission of sins. He calls for all Christians to unite and fight by the command of Christ. Let the fighting with each other end and begin to fight together against the barbarians. For he states that it would be a disgrace if those who “worships demons” would conquer people who are believers of omnipotent God/ Those that are mercenaries and that are fighting for little pay will obtain the eternal reward. By joining the crusade God will always guide you. 11.5

“By thy worth I pray thee,
Give the suppliant help in need,
Heaven will surely repay thee.”
A Song of the Open Road
“When we're in neediness,
Theive we with greediness;
Tara, tantara, teino!”
Good sense of community and brotherhood; reminiscent of modern day fraternities 11.1
