    Both sides were heretics and allied against Christians, a lot of English and Dutch worked as pirates not only as independent forces in the Caribbean but in the Mediterranean as member of moorish pirate fleets.

    How much of the Byzantine Empire had to be conquered before the Catholic Church started caring?

      They cared from the Nicene Council, because they didn't conceptualize a difference between Byzantium and the Ottomemes: both were a despotic satanic oriental despotism that had to be put down.

        they'd probably start caring if they actually managed to conquer Vienna and the Austrian territories of the HRE then

        That's three, and those are just the examples that immediately come to mind - I assume there would be more if I actually read up on the subject.

          The Protestant-Catholic divide was very insignificant in terms of politics after the wars of religion.

    They likely wouldn't care enough to do anything until they conquered France.

    at the last moment. Angloids believe that being the first to react to something is a sign of being lower class. This is what having the luxury of living on an island does to a mofo.

        You don't have to belong to a rival denomination to point out how moronic it would be for any protestant country to expend significant effort in defending catholic parts of europe

          I find this question interesting due to the distance and religious differences. And there were points that German Protestants felt sufficiently threatened by the Turks to offer significant help to the emperor. This question is referring to the English.

    England basically owned the Holy Land for several generations and Catholics didn't care, as after the counter-Reformation they'd convinced themselves that Rome was more important. The English ended up selling it back to the israelites and now look where we are. Maybe Catholic Europe should've shown a little more respect to England over the years, then they wouldn't have been forced to go against your interests (which is neither 'perfidious' nor 'backstabbing' fwiw)

      Catholic Europe was not monolithic and this was meant as a historical/theoretical question.

      The Hussites also proposed an anti-Turkish pact with the Catholics.

    >caring
    Define caring. Even staunch proddie writers were explicit in their belief that catholic rulers were FAR preferable to the turks.
    If you expect active military partecipation, well that shit ain't happening until you have turks fricking around in the Atlantic or rampaging in France or Germany.
    You can't really expect them to project any further regardless of how much they care, by the late 16th century war is waged by military-fiscal states, not independent armies of crusaders no matter how well funded.

    The Spanish and Austrians would have to be subjugated by a Franco-Ottoman alliance. Then the English/Portuguese would begin to panic and work on a counter-Turkish strategy together.
