The Second Council of Lyon issues its Crusade decree, Constitutiones Pro Zelo Fidei. Under the leadership of Pope Gregory X, the council decides that for the next six years, a tithe of all the benefices throughout Europe will be collected to fund the next Crusade.

At this same Council Michael VIII Palaeologus, Byzantine Emperor, agrees to a unification of the Eastern Orthodox and Roman Churches.
