    044: Investiture Controversy with the History of the Papacy


    Power struggles between Holy Roman Emperors and Popes. Gregorian Reforms, schisms and who can appoint bishops. Many ideas we have of the Middle Ages com from these events in the 12. century. Luckily I got Steven Guerra from the History of the Papacy here to help break it all down. Visit http://atozhistorypage.com for more on the background of the church at this time.
