In 1095, Byzantine emperor Alexius I appealed to [[Pope Urban II|Pope Urban I]]I for help against renewed [[Muslim]] invasions in the Byzantine–Seljuk Wars, which caused Urban to launch the First Crusade aimed at aiding the Byzantine Empire and returning the Holy Land to Christian control. In the 11th century, strained relations between the primarily Greek church and the Latin Church separated them in the East–West Schism, partially due to conflicts over papal authority.

In this age great gothic cathedrals in France were an expression of popular pride in the Christian faith.
