“I cry, I cry and I cry again…the religion of Christ, the true faith, has fallen so low that it is an object of scorn not only to the devil but to the Jews and Saracens and pagans…these keep their law, as they believe it; but we, intoxicated with the world, have deserted our law.”

Pope Gregory VII
