The Byzantine Empire, or Eastern Roman Empire, was the predominantly Greek-speaking continuation of the eastern part of the Roman Empire during Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages. Its capital city was Constantinople, originally founded as Byzantium.

The origins of the great civilization known as the Byzantine Empire can be traced to 330 A.D., when the Roman emperor Constantine I dedicated a “new Rome” on the site of the ancient Greek colony of Byzantium. It survived the fragmentation and fall of the Western Roman Empire in the 5th century AD and continued to exist for an additional 1,000 years until it fell to the Ottoman Turks in 1453.

During the 1,125 years, of its existence, the empire was the most powerful economic, cultural, and military force in Europe. It spawned a rich tradition of art, literature and learning while serving as a military buffer between the states of Europe and invasion from Asia.

The Byzantine Empire finally fell in 1453, after an Ottoman army stormed Constantinople during the reign of Constantine XI.

The first of the Crusades began in 1095, when armies of Christians from Western Europe responded to Pope Urban II’s plea to go to war against Muslim forces in the Holy Land. Considered at the time to be divinely sanctioned, these campaigns, involving often ruthless battles. At their core was a desire for access to shrines associated with the life and ministry of Jesus, above all the Holy Sepulcher, the church in Jerusalem said to contain the tomb of Chris.

Absolution from sin and eternal glory were promised to the Crusaders, who also hoped to gain land and wealth in the East. Pope Urban’s plea met with a tremendous response, both among lower levels of the military as well as ordinary citizens; it was determined that those who joined the armed pilgrimage would wear a cross as a symbol of the Church.

The crusades lasted for 200 years until support for such efforts disappeared in the 16th century, with the rise of the Reformation and the corresponding decline of papal authority.
