Product Description
Contrary to popular belief, the Catholic Church was not always monolithic institution that dominated religious life in medieval Western Europe. Not until the 10th century did a reform movement develop that eventually made the Church the premier institution of the Middle Ages. This lesson traces the history of the Papacy from the Cluniac reforms through the investiture Struggle up to its height of power under Pope Innocent III. It then looks at the inherent problems that being a rich and politically powerful institution brough the Church as well as other forces that led to corruption in the later Middle Ages and eventually the Protestant Reformation. Highlights include picture essays on the life of St. Francis and Monastic life and sign language.

This is a self-contained PowerPoint that develops slide by slide while other notes for the students scroll down the side. It can be run as a timed presentation on its own, presented slide by slide for discussion, or integrated into your other lectures. There are also extensive pictures with captions mixed in to illustrate the lesson and capture students’ interest. This packet also contains a student reading, flowchart, and the author’s own research notes which contain lots of details and interesting trivia to spice up your class.
