Product Description
This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on The Middle Ages: Investiture Controversy. All the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

After the fall of the Western Roman Empire in the 5th century, significant changes took place within the churches of the Germanic successor states, which generally ceased to look to the pope in Rome or to ecumenical councils for guidance.

Instead, nobles and anointed kings assumed numerous Christian duties, including the protection and foundation of churches and abbeys, which they had often built and endowed. Although the canon law declaring that bishops were to be elected by the clergy and people of their future diocese ignored the rule.

Gregory VII eventually banned completely the Investiture of Eclesiastics by all laymen, including kings. The prohibition was first promulgated in September 1077 in France by the papal legate Hugh of Die at the Council of Autun.

At a council in Rome in November 1078 Gregory himself announced that clerics were not to accept lay Investiture and extended and formalized the prohibition in March 1080.

The presentation covers the following:
