Storyboard Text

  • Hi i'm Pope Gregory VII and I have power that is very different from the power that the king has
  • Hi i'm Emperor Henry IV and my problem is that Pope Gregory VII does not agree with me on a decision that I made about picking bishop  
  • I wish to remove Pope Gregory VII of his position. Don't you agree as well Germany bishops?
  • And what authority do you have?
  • Very well then I will now excommunicate Emperor Henry IV and I will have the empire's nobles come and overthrow you
  • No, please forgive me pope I just want my power back please!
  • Brrrrrrrrrrrr
  • Hahahaha today I proved to be more powerful then the emperor himself
  • The fight over the right to choose bishops even continued after Gregory and Henry passed away. In 1122 a new pope and emperor came to an agreement that the church officials were the ones that would choose  the bishops and the abbots. But they still continued to have problems
