The Peoples Crusade

The peoples crusade consisted of peasants and people of lower classes. The Edict given at Clermont swept these people into a fervor to go and take back the holy land. These people were indirectly led by Peter the hermit. Peter had a gift of speech and was very well known before the Pope Urban gave his edict. Where ever Peter went he gathered people on the path towards the crusade. There were 15,000 people that went on the peoples crusade. As this crusade moved east trough Europe their anti-Semitism grew. There were anti-Semitic acts of violence in Trier, Regensburg, and Cologne. These violent outbreaks followed the peoples crusade through Eastern Europe. The peoples crusade finally ended when these people weren't allowed to pass through Hungary.
