5 Royal Power Firm control
Granted fiefs to Church, Norman lords (barons) Monitored building of castles First allegiance to him Census in 1086 Domesday Book Listed every property in England (both large and small) No one could escape Aided in tax collecting Royal exchequer Treasury Collected taxes, fines, fees

Right to try clergy in royal courts Archbishop of Canterbury opposed king 4 knights murdered him Henry denied any part Eased attempts to regulate clergy Archbishop declared a saint

8 Traditions of Government
Royal authority vs. Traditional feudal rights John Henry’s son Clever, greedy, cruel, untrustworthy 3 enemies Phillip II of France, Pope Innocent III and English nobles 1205: lost English-held lands in France to Phillip Rejected Pope Innocent III’s nominee, so he was excommunicated English were placed under interdict To save crown, John accepted England as fief of Pope Paid yearly fee to Rome

9 Magna Carta John angered nobles with taxes and abuse of power
1215: forced him to sign Magna Carta Great Charter Affirmed feudal rights Protected from arbitrary arrest and imprisonment “due process” No new taxes “no taxation without representation” 2 things Nobles had certain rights Monarch must obey law

10 Parliament Great Council Evolved into Parliament Unified England
Framework for English legislature 2-house body House of Lords: nobles, high clergy House of Commons: knights and middle class citizens “power of the purse” Checked or limited power of monarch

15 Popes vs. Emperors Pope Gregory VII Emperor Henry IV
Wanted Church independent of secular rulers Banned lay investiture Emperor presented bishops with ring and staff that symbolized their office Only pope had right to install bishops Emperor Henry IV Argued that bishops held lands as royal fiefs Felt entitled to give symbol of office Exchanged insulting notes with pope Gregory excommunicated him Forced to make peace Presented himself as a repentant sinner Gregory knew he was just trying to save throne, but forgave him Returned later for revenge, led army to Rome, and forced pope into exile

16 Concordat of Worms Struggle for 50 years
1122: both sides accepted treaty Agreed that Church had sole power to elect and invest bishops Emperors had right to invest them with fiefs
