The Crusades involved the Latin/Catholic powers in western Europe, the Byzantine/Orthodox powers in eastern Europe, and various Muslim states such as Turks, Syrians, and Egyptians. In 1054, the Latin and Byzantine empires ended their alliance because of several political and religious issues. What was NOT one of them?
