People who broke Canon law were subject to excommunication.

to act as an anchor for the church, and
offered wisdom to church comers.

Effects on the people:

Everything was ran through the church via the bishops. The pope commanded the bishops, then the bishops followed through. The bishops had a lot of authority, they were the "nobles" of feudalism.
Effect on the Church:

Ultimately the Power of the church
simply relied on faith, when the
people lost faith the church lost power.

hope they will go to heaven.
