Storyboard Text

  • The struggles and fights between who should have the power to choose the bishops between popes or kings started because of Pope Gregory VII and Emperor Henry IV. 
  • It all started when Pope Gregory VII thought popes should have the power to choose bishops. He also thought popes-not kings- got their power from God. 
  • We should have the power to choose the bishops not you guys. 
  • Emperor Henry IV thought otherwise. He thought popes had to much power. He argued that kings should choose bishops because God has chosen the king.
  • No we should choose the bishops.
  • Since they fought to much Pope Gregory VII decided to excommunicate Emperor Henry IV.
  • From now on you will be excommunicated from this church.
  • Emperor Henry IV begged Pope Gregory VII for his forgiveness, and begged him to let him back in the church.
  • Please forgive me. Let me back in to the church.
  • No
  • At first Pope Gregory VII said no to to him, but after three days of Emperor Henry IV standing barefoot in the snow Pope Gregory VII let him back into the church.
  • Please forgive me. Let me back in to the church.
  • Fine come in
