Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I meant that at the time, it was the Church that ruled Europe.  If the Ottomans had been able to go any farther, the Church's power would have crumbled because of it's inability to prevent the invasion by the "infidels" (or so I've heard).

I'm not very good at explaining what I mean the first time around.
