Storyboard Text

  • I will send you back under my protection.
  • Please, my rivals plot to kill me.
  • I'm glad the emperor is here to aid the church.
  • I'm glad that the pope is here to help me.
  • I have greater power than even the emperor.
  • Charlemagne was a devout Christian king whose goal was to become emperor. Charlemagne and the Pope worked together when the Pope fled to him from rivals in Rome. A few months later he returned to Rome under Charlemagne’s protection. Later the Pope crowned him emperor which strengthened the power of the Church in Western Europe, but insulted the Byzantine emperor.
  • I forgive you.
  • I am sorry
  • Charlemagne believed that God had made him emperor in order to do God’s work on Earth and that it was the duty of the pope to assist him in that work. While Pope Leo believed that the Church had made Charlemagne emperor to assist the Church in doing God’s work. These two beliefs would later lead to a conflict between emperor and pope.
  • We have come to an agreement.
  • Pope Gregory issued a list of rules declaring his supreme authority over both Church and secular leaders as well as that only the pope had the power to choose bishops and even to remove emperors from the throne. King Henry reacted by first ignoring the popes rules and naming his own bishop for the city of Milan, Italy. This caused him to be excommunicated and after a while he came back and the pope forgave him.

  • The conflict ended in 1122 when the Church and the Holy Roman Empire reached an agreement called the Concordat of Worms. This resulted in only the Church being able to appoint bishops while allowing the emperors to give fiefs to bishops to win loyalty.
  • The relationship between pope and emperor was never a good one and would likely continue for much longer but the Concordant of Worms brought them to the closest thing they had as peace and gave both sides equal power.
