Storyboard Text

  • Gregory the VII's Election 
  • I, Gregory, am now the new pope of Rome by election!
  • Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhh!
  • Gregory's Rules and Decrees
  • Only I can hire people for the church!
  • Henry's Outrage
  • Only I should be able to hire church officials! He will pay for this!
  • Gregory the VII was elected Pope of Rome in 1073.   
  • Henry's New Rules
  • Haha! I've changed the rules now! I have the power to hire my own officials! And Gregory will be thrown out!
  • The bishops and I have decided that Gregory the VII is no longer pope!
  • Once elected, Gregory made reforms including only letting the pope elect church official, stopping people from selling church offices, and banning priests from marrying.
  • The EXCOMMUNICATION
  • Fine, then you are excommunicated from the church!
  • Henry was outraged that when Gregory made the rule that only the pope could hire church officials.  Henry always thought it should be his privilege.
  • The Resolution
  • Fine, you are allowed back into the church.
  • Since Henry did not like Gregory's rules, he decided to gather a council of bishops and decided Gregory was no longer pope.
  • Gregory then responded by kicking Henry out the church.  He also said nobody needed to obey him.
  • Gregory's influence was so big that the only option he saw was to beg for forgiveness.  After he did, he was allowed back into the church.
  • Please, I beg of you, forgive me!
