Were the Crusades Motivated by Greed?

Real Crusades History #300.  And don't forget the Real Crusades History website!

No! They were motivated by the desire to reconquer Christian lands stolen by the Muslims. Men beggared themselves to go on Crusade and then have a high chance of dying by enemy action or disease.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
