The patriarch's second letter, which was composed in the spring of  but apparently never arrived at the papal curia, is especially important for the light it sheds on the depth of the ecclesiastical differences between Rome and Constantinople on the eve of the Fourth Crusade. Inasmuch as the Papadakis/Talbot edition has ¯aws, Jannis Spiteris reedited that crucial second letter and provided an Italian translation, as well as a learned analysis: La Critica bizantina del primato Romano nel secolo XII (Rome, ), - and -.

November  Composed while the Fourth Crusade was still a vaguely formed notion, this letter introduces us to Fulk of Neuilly, one of the most dynamic popular preachers of the early thirteenth century, and a major voice for moral reform and crusade in the region of northern France. Fulk's role preaching the Fourth Crusade has been carefully studied by a number of historians, and those details need not concern us here. What is worth our attention is the way in which this early letter links evangelical preaching, moral reformation, and the crusade ± a linkage that, to the pope's mind, was natural and self-evident.
