Adhemar Le Puy

de Monteil) (d.1098. French bishop. A nobleman who became bishop of Le Puy about 1080, he seems to have made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land about 1086-87. Thus, when Urban II proclaimed the First Crusade* at Clermont in 1095, Adhemar was named as the pope's legate and deputy with the crusading armies. His functions included giving military advice, mediating between the rival Christian princes in the crusading force, and establishing harmonious relations between the Crusaders and the Eastern Christians in the territories conquered by the Crusaders. He also tried to integrate Eastern and Western clergy into a single church in the Holy Land.
