The Great schism role play

Storyboard Text

  • What’s wrong darling husband?
  • The pope is trying to take over my church. This is MY empire, what I say goes. I have authority over our religion and government.
  • But he’s the head of all Christians or at least he claims to be. This power struggle between Byzantine empowers and popes has been going on for too long. Something must be done once and for all .
  • Who does he think he is? He doesn’t live in our empire so he has no authority over our churches and people.
  • Why are we still affiliated with Rome in any way? Honey, why don’t you defy the pope once and for all? We don’t need him, and our people respect the patriarch far more then the pope.
  • The pope didn’t like it very much when you appointed me head of all Byzantine churches. Maybe that’s why he’s being so adamant about about her Italy.
  • You’re absolutely right dear. Let’s write the pope a letter stating our position. He can’t have southern Italy, and that’s final.
