Stedinger Crusade


Stedinger Crusade
(1229–34) Crusade against the Stedinger, a body of peasants labeled as heretics by the archbishop of Bremen, who secured papal support for a crusade.

In fact, the charge of heresy was unsubstantiated, and the "crusade" was an attack led by the archbishop's brother and other nobles of the region. In 1234 Pope Gregory IX was persuaded to summon a crusade with full privileges.
