Storyboard Text

  • In 1073 a new pope came to power. His name was Pope Gregory VII. Trouble stirred when Gregory disapproved of a bishop chosen by the Holy Roman Emperor Henry IV.
  • I don't like the bishop who was chosen. I shall disapprove of this person chosen and the person who chose him.
  • Irritated because Gregory questioned his authority, he was successful in persuading Germany's bishops to overthrow Pope Gregory VII. 
  • HE QUESTIONED MY AUTHORITY! WE SHALL PERSUADE GERMANY'S BISHOPS TO OVERTHROW THIS MAN! UGH!
  • YES SIR!
  • Sir, Pope Gregory has questioned your authority of being emperor and who you have chosen. What would you like to do?
  • In response to the Emperor trying to overthrow the Pope, Pope Gregory excommunicated Emperor Henry IV. Gregory also called on empire's Nobles to overthrow Henry.
  • Sir, we have just gotten word that Emperor Henry IV is intent on overthrowing you.
  • Preposterous! He wants to overthrow me! I've had enough! I am going to excommunicate him!
  • Desperate to stay in power, Emperor Henry IV traveled to Italy where Pope Gregory was staying.
  • Please forgive me Pope Gregory for what I attempted to do! I've been out here for 3 days
  • Emperor Henry IV stood out in the snow for three straight days barefoot in front of where Gregory was staying. On the 4th day Gregory finally forgave Henry. 
  • OH THANK YOU!
  • FINE!
  • You are welcome.
  • Once Pope Gregory VII accepted Emperor Henry IV 's apology he let him back into the church. This let Gregory prove that he was indeed more powerful than the Emperor.
  • (handshake)
  • Thank you for forgiving me Pope Gregory.
