What do “the Church” and “the State” mean? “The Church” = the Catholic Church & its officials (specifically the Pope) “The State” = kings, rulers, & government

Charlemagne Set up feudal system to keep order in kingdom Helped Pope put down a rebellion in 800s Supported Church & spread Christianity Tried to increase learning in kingdom Kingdom split between 3 sons after death
Charlemagne crowned Holy Roman Emperor by Pope Leo III
Conflict between Church & State Happened because each wanted more power over the other Example: King Henry IV & Pope Gregory VII Reason: Pope made a statement that only he could appoint clergymen. Henry IV disagreed & tried to choose a new Pope to replace Gregory. Result: Concordat of Worms in 1122 ended conflict & said kings could give clergy legal powers, but only the Pope could give them religious powers.
