Battle For the Bishops Created by Pope Gregory VII and King Henery IV Story Told by Tyree Abraham
The Clash between Pope Gregory VII and King Henery IV
I Pope Gregory VII have a statement. For Generations Kings and Princes derive their origins from men ignorant of God who raised themselves above their fellows by.... every kind of crime? Does anyone doubt that the priests of Christ are to be considered as fathers and masters of kings and Prince and all of the Believers?
Who is that? That is Pope Gregory the 7th, sire. He's a Pope! Yes, he's talking about how the Popes should be able to choose all of the religious officials. Do he not know how I have chosen Bishops already for MY country. He does sire, he says he doesn't like them... He says he doesn't approve your decisions. He dares to question the Holy King Henry the 4th. Do he not know that Our Lord, Jesus Christ, has called us to Kingship, but has not called hin to the priesthood... He who has not been called by God have taught that our bishops who have been called by God are to be REJECTED.
Maximilien, go to Germany and get the bishops there. Pope Gregory Don't deserve to be Pope.
You tried to get the German Bishops to remove me as Pope! Sir I didn't want to do this! Do what, you have no power over me, I am your King, not the other way around! Sir...It King to you! Fine king, you are now and forever will be excommunicated until further notice. NO! You can't... do that!
Pope, I need to see You, Please. I'm Sorry
I refuse to see you. ........
That was the day Gregory proved himself more powerful than the king, at least for that moment. Even after their deaths the fight over who chose the bishops continued. This was until 1122 when a new Pope and King reached a compromise, They decided that church officials would choose all bishops and abbots, but the bishops and abbots would still have to obey the king.
3 days have passed and King Henery has been standing out in the snow barefoot.
FIne I'll see you and give you back your entrance to church with the power you had
