Pope Urban II made possibly the most persuasive speech of the Middle Ages, bringing about the rise of the Crusades by summoning all Christians in Europe to battle against Muslims to regain the Holy Land, with a cry of "God wills it!" or "Deus vult." Wanting to strengthen the papacy's authority, Urban promised the people who went on crusades the prospect to unite Christian Europe under him as he wrestled with taking back the Holy Land from the rule of the Ottoman Empire.
