Sir Thomas Roe, an English diplomat and ambassador to Constantinople once said "The Ottoman Empire has the body of a sick old man, who tried to appear healthy, although his end was near." Definitely, the Ottoman Empire wouldn't stay strong and young forever. Due its fast and rapid success in expanding, having a strong court system, and having an efficient system of taxation, other great powers in Europe felt threatened. After all, if the empire was expanding and gaining much power quickly, it would be unexceptional for it to invade one of these great powers.

It was a series of military expeditions caused by religious and personal motives that caused the church to become a vital and powerful part of the European lifestyle.

Perhaps one of the most well known of these events was the Crusades. The Crusades were a series of religious wars between Christians and Muslims, beginning in the year 1095 and lasting nearly 200 years, which were sanctioned by the Catholic Church with the primary aims of halting the expansion of Islam and reclaiming the Holy Land from Muslim rule.

From here, his policy only became more extreme. Christians were persecuted, temples were desecrated, and holy texts were burnt.
