Crusade Against Turks Proclaimed by Pope Calixtus III

Pope Callixtus III

Pope Calixtus III proclaims a crusade against the Turks in order to recapture the city of Constantinople. Despite pleas for help, few European leaders had sent any assistance to Constantinople when the siege began, and even the papacy sent a mere 200 knights.

Thus, this new call for a Crusade is too little, too late.
