Chapter 12, Part II: The Decline of the Church's Prestige and Life of the People

Terms to outline:
  • The Babylonian Captivity
  • The Great Schism
  • The Conciliar Movement
  • Marsiglio of Padua/Defensor Pacis
  • John Wyclif
  • Marriage
  • Prostitution
  • Fur-collar Crime
  • Ethnicity and Race
Questions to Consider:

  • Why did the pope succumb to the pressure to move to France?
  • What caused the Great Schism and how did various countries respond to the Church's split?
  • Why did the Conciliar movement start?  What does it demonstrate about the Church's authority?
  • What was Marsiglio of Padua and John Wyclif's view of the Church?
  • Describe the process of marriage in the Middle Ages.  What were the roles of husband and wife?
  • What place did prostitution have during the middle ages?
  • Why were nobles committing crimes?
  • How were people of different ethnicities treated?
