Chapter Summary

Eugene IV, who was in close contact with Cardinal Cesarini, followed with great interest the negotiations for an end to the civil war and the dramatic string of victories won by Hunyadi in 1442. On January 1, he promulgated a Bull announcing the crusade. It deserves to be looked at in detail, for it is the clearest expression of Eugene IV's vision of the Turkish problem, how it related to the faithful and the papacy and how it was to be solved. Denied the valuable support of the Wallachians, the crusaders had nevertheless found an equally zealous and capable ally in the Serbian despot George Brankovic. In addition there were the troops of the noble and royal banderia as well as Cesarini's banner of foreign crusaders. Official negotiations with the sultan had already begun before the army reentered Hungary.
