A split, known as the Great Schism, happened when Pope Clement V moved the center of from Rome to Avignon. This made people think that French had too much power.
In 1414, a conference was summoned in Germany to end the schism, and they met from 1414 to 1418.The Church was unified once again with a new pope named Pope Martin V. after Church officials persuaded the Roman pope to resign, and had the French pope removed.
In the 16th century, many people disliked how they had to taxes to the church, and how they did ot pay taxes on their landholdings. This led to a movement known as the Reformation started by a man named Martin Luther. Luther had many conflicts with the Catholic Church and wrote out his disputes with the church in his Ninety-Five Theses
Catholicism is the true religion to get closer to God.
Maybe I should follow Catholicism
Printing in this time became an effecctive method of spreading Luther's ideas. It was cheaper and was able to produce papers in different languags so other people can read it.
In the mid 1500's, battles were fought in Europe over religion. Charles V, a Holy Roman Emperor and a king of many countries, made Luther an outlaw and agreed to make a peace treaty with many Lutheran princes, the people they went to war against. They met in 1555 and had their peace treaty called the Peace of Augsburg.
In the early 1530's, a new important religious order takes place known as the Society of Jesus, or the Jesuits, formed by the Ignatius of Loyola. The Jesuits were more of a military unit that religious, and learned obedience and discipline. They mainly helped spread Catholicism across many countries, which means they played a role in supporting the Counter Reformation,
