- Historical Context
- Effects/Legacy What is 'The Great Schism' Divided Europe Politically:
France, Sicily,Scotland, Castile, Aragon, and Portugal were on one side. On the other side, Rome supported the Roman pope, as did Flanders, Poland, Hungary and Germany Impact of The Great Schism The Great Schism ended between 1414 and 1418,
when the Council of Constance was successful in healing reaching an arrangement. The deposition of the Avignon Pope induced the resignation of the Roman Pope.

Therefore, the schism was healed and there was room for the election of a single pope, Pope Martin V, who reigned from 1417-1431. End of the Schism One's relationship with God is an entirely personal matter. Unifying Theme 1053-1415
From 1053-1377, a series of events in the Church led to divisions between various groups of Catholics. In the year 1378, the Roman Catholic Church split when the King of France decided that he did not like the Italian Pope and elected one of his own. The Great Schism, as it has been called, lasted for about 68 years, during which time there were two popes claiming authority over the Catholic Church.
At this time, the Catholic Church was the preeminent power in Europe. Therefore, the Great Schism had a tremendous effect on the western world. Include Popes were taken advantage of and played against one another. Many rival factions would bribe both popes or agree to favor one pope over another. People were confused, which lead to a loss of influence for the Catholic Church. Many seeds of Protestantism were planted during this time. Through my readings and viewing, one clear connecting thread stood out: one must develop one's own relationship with a higher power, it is impossible for others to tell you how to do this or to do it for you The Name of the Rose (motion picture) Judith and Holofernes -Is ________ type of art.

The night's search as well as the answer he finds both reveal a crucial theme: you must find your own answers. This can be extrapolated to mean that Chaucer is trying to communicate with his audience that just as the knight had to find his answers, so do we. In addition, the answer he receives further buttresses this theme. God wants sovereignty over our lives, but wants us to find our own way to him instead of copying others.

In 'The Name of the Rose', the main character, William of Baskerville, finds himself investigating a rash of suicides in the priesthood. As the situation unfolds, William finds himself reexamining much of the dogma he has been taught. In the end, he realizes that while there are many truths one can learn from the Church, one must ultimately decide how to interpret and use this information. Hence, he learns that one must form a unique and personal relationship with God. Thematic Connection

'Judith and Holofernes' expresses the idea that one must build a personal relationship with God. The tyrant, Holofernes, has followed old and erroneous teachings regarding the will of God. Judith's killing of him reinforces the idea that copying and mimicking other's relationship with God leads to confusion and crises of spirit. In this bronze sculpture, Judith represents a new way of understand God - one that involves thinking for yourself and letting God speak directly to you. Thematic Connection -

Although 'The Canterbury Tales' deals with many issues and tells many stories, it is clear that one of the main themes running through it is that people must make their own relationship with God. Nowhere in the book is this more clear than in 'The Wife of Bath'. In this tale, a knight is looking for other people to answer a question that has been given to him: 'what do women want most?' 'God' - Tori Amos Thematic Connection -

Though this article was written by a devout evangelical, it discusses in detail how individual Christians must forge their own relationship with Jesus, and further to that, God. It relies heavily on emotional appeals, such as "without your own relationship with the Savior, you are a slave to the convictions of others in moments of doubt." -About?

In the song "God", Tori Amos directly addresses and chastises God for not doing enough to help people on Earth. Though this conflicts with much of my other sources, it keeps unity with the theme that one must establish a personal relationship with God. The ability of the singer to boldly make demands of God shows beyond a doubt that this song displays a individual connection between a human and God.
