Pope Urban II called for the 1st crusade because he received a letter from Alexios I Komnenos asking for help against the Seljuk Turks who had taken over large portions of his empire. This first unofficial wave of the first crusade is known as the people's crusade, led by Peter the Hermit and Walter the Penniless. The first battle of the first crusade was the battle of Dorylaeum in 1097. The official crusader army left from Le Puy, France in August of 1096 AD. Major players of the first crusade include Duke Godfrey, Hugh of France, Bohemond, and Raymond of Toulouse.

The Audita Tremendi was issued by Pope Gregory VIII in 1187 calling for the third crusade in response to the capture of Jerusalem by Saladin.

The third crusade was concluded as a tie with the signing of the treaties of Ramla and Jaffa by Richard I and Saladin.
In 1198 Pope Innocent III proclaims the launch of the 4th Crusade. A tax was put on churches and used to fund the crusade.
