I do not think that the pope should of done that.I think it should be at least almost equal the way the the old pope did it with the king I think is the best.I could see why though that the king would not like to share its power.
Same, I think that the pope crossed a line. What a shame that the other pope (Adrian) died...
Good point you made there.
I agree with you Han. It was such a shame that Pope Adrian died.😢 The king and Pope Adrian had such a good relationship.
Pope Leo was a very good example of some politicians in today's society. They will try anything to get into power, even if it means lying, cheating, and risking others' well beings. Having a huge ego and being consistently power-hungry will hurt you in the long run. There are also good politicians(Pope Adrian reference) who do their best to incorporate feedback from the public and are humble of their reputation. You have a good point, and it would've been nice, had there been another pope like Adrian.
I totally agree with you! They should have kept it peaceful. They just went crazy with their arguments.
Honestly, I don't think it was right for the church to try and weaken the king's power. If the pope wanted power so badly, then he should've tried to get it in a more...
..."peaceful way", instead of threatening nobles about their location after death...
I honestly don't think that the pope should have more power than the king, because if so, then he'd be overpowered, and that'd mean that the pope would become some type of tyrant. I mean, even though the majority of people were Christan, it doesn't mean that the pope should rule over them. If he "talked to God" (not trying to offend anyone here, whoops), then he shouldn't threaten people.
I would agree with you a more peaceful way then that. I think that everything would be better today if we were not so violent. I 100% agree with you Han.
I think it was not right that the pope tried to take away the king's power. So if they didn't do that I think it would have been more peaceful and fair between them. After they would have worked I think they would have been a good team. Usually when two people are good friends they make good teams so they just needed to work things out instead of crowning the other.
I think it was right for the church to weaken the king's power, as they have freedom to do that, but I don't like the way the pope attempted to do it. I would have much preferred it to be more peaceful.
As for the power level of the pope, I still think the king should have power. If the church had power, it would seem meaningless for the position of king to even exist. Sure, he'd hold the title of king, but he would appear to be useless. I think the pope and king could balance their power levels, so that way, it wouldn't end in dispute, as opposed to one being power hungry, and the other, basically being subliminally cheated out of power.
Yes, the church had the freedom to try and weaken the king's power, but don't the people in Europe also have the freedom to religion? If the church had full power, then I think that the people would feel obligated to convert their religion. I'm not really sure, just thinking out loud.
It was not right for the chuckh to weaken the king. Even though, most people were Christian doesn't mean that they are more worthy. The Pope should not have more power because the king is the one that keeps track of citizens and makes sure that the food is healthy. 🎎🏰 vs. +
I agree with you. The fact that the Pope got more power was ridiculous because like you said, they aren't more worthy.
I think it was defiantly wrong, especially because the pope already had power. It seems that even when people have lots of power they always want more. Besides if the pope gets all the power what's the point of the king anyway?
Sorry! Spelling error. I meant church, not chuckh!😊
I do think it was right, but the way the pope attempted this was disapointing. The pope was lying and cheating, even though they know they should not have. If the town figured this out, they may lose trust in the pope. Holy people, who are known because they suposedly talk to god, should know that this is wrong.
I don't think the Pope should have gotten the power over the king. The Pope was usually an older gentlemen like today, so he wasn't able to be at war, and basically he wasn't able to do the things a king could do. Now I know what you might say, the King is possibly too, but you have to consider the fact that the Kind has armies and armies and people to back him up when he needs. It's just the Pope, along with some weak religious figures like monks that can't protect themselves, like when the vikings raid the monasteries.
I agree with you Claire 100%. In my eyes the pope was really old and could not do much but run a church.
I also agree because there was a point in having a king and a pope and the pope made things so much more complicated.
I agree yet I don't. I think that an older gentleman could possibly run a country with greater intellect and experience. Though, I agree that they might not be able to be in a war.
I believe that it would be good for the king to be guided by the pope, but the pope should never have all the power. I mean otherwise what;s the point of the king at all? It kind of makes me think of how we have different branches that pass things down and decide what to do about things. The king would have an idea and go to the pope to ask his advise.
The point of a king was that the country could have their own ruler. If their was not a king, citizens would be running around stealing things, or possibly killing others too. The king would put the crook in jail and all of the people would be saved. LOVE Royalty!!🎎
I think that the pope and the king should have equal power. I think this because if the pope had all of the power, he would have two jobs, running the church and ruling all of the franks. Also, I think that the kingdom would fall very easily because the pope wouldn't be as prejudice as a king would be.
I think it was wrong for the pope to try to take away the kings power because the pope did already have power over the church. I also think it was wrong for the pope to try to take away the power because if the pope had all the power what is the point of a king. I also think it was wrong because just because the people of the Franks were Christian dos't mean the pope should have all the power.
I agree Daniel. The pope already had power over the church. Why would he want more?
I agree with Greg. He has way to much power to start with.
I agree with you Daniel, just because all the franks were christian doesn't mean he had to have all of the power and rule everyone.
I agree with George. I also think they should have equal power.
I agree Josie because the pope did already have power over the church. I also agree because if the pope took all the power what is the point of a king to do nothing I guess because the pope has all the power. I really think you made a good point because people always try to get more power then they have right know as kings ,warriors as everyone.
I agree and disagree. I get why people are saying that since the Pope rules the church and speaks to God, he should get all of the power. But at the same time, the king has royalty running through his blood and the last time I checked, the Pope does not. Get my point?
I think that "royalty" is just another word that makes people think higher of themselves than others. Does it really matter if the Pope doesn't have "royalty" like a king may have?
I agree with you and the way you are thinking. The pope does have the power of the church so why does he want more if what he has is a very good amount but at the same time, more people were Christian in Europe so for the pope to have the majority of the power would still make sense.
I think it was wrong for the pope to try to take the power. He is the head of the church, and it seems wrong for a religious leader to have power over a TON of people. The power could have been equally shared out.
I think the king should have more power. I think this because the popes take the power to their head. So in that case they will make the country a monarchy.
This is a difficult question, due to your religion might be influencing your choice. However, I don't think it was really right for the church to try and overpower the king. The king, at the time, wasn't doing anything to jeopardize the power of the Pope. Also, everybody has the freedom of religion, so if the church came into power it might force others to convert to Christianity.
In my opinion, the church/pope and king should have the same amount of power. Unfortunately it was not that way. The pope wanted more and more rule, even all of it. There is a problem with the pope/church rule all the land because, the pope didn't know how to fight in or command the army in a war. Unlike the pope, the king knows how to do that stuff, he's born to do it. That is why I think the king should have more power.
I think that the pope needs to be in charge because he is the one a
That talks to God
I think that they should not have had the same amount of power because there was a reason there was a pope and a king. If they were supposed to have the same power they would not have popes and just have kings. I think that it was wrong to try to weaken the king because the king is supposed to have a certain power of things.
I completely agree with you. Instead of fighting for power I think they should just share the power. It does no good to fight.
Yes I think that was fair. If I were the pope that is what I would have done. That is why I thought that was fair.
Well the church should just leave the King alone. What is the point of having a king if they are not going to do anything. I think that the pope and the King should share equal power. They should work together to do things.
In my opinion they are both very important jobs, therefor they should have equal power. If the majority of the citizens were christian, there would be lots of church so the pope needs to have some power. On the king's side, the people need a ruler to maintain crime, laws, and keep an eye on everyone so there is no chaos. So, the king should also have some power. I did not think it was right for the Pope to try and take away all of the King's power though.
I think the pope and the King should have equal power. I think this because if the pope replaced the king he would have to do two major jobs. The kingdom would be attacked a lot since enemies would think the pope doesn't know how to defend its kingdom.
