The Catholic Church
The Church's Fall
Many people didn't like how the church got their money or how they spent it, so they just didn't pay the tax. A lot of people got upset by the church's selling of indulgences because only the richest people could afford it. People bought it to avoid penalty in the afterlife.
The Catholic Church separation lasted from 1378 to 1417, this was known as the Schism. Pope Clement V. wanted to move the Catholic government to Rome, Italy, Avignon, and then to France. There was a conference held by the Emperor from 1414 to 1418, and they were discussing about ending the Schism. Most people wanted a new Pope, and later on they picked a new Pope: Martin V. He started to unify the Catholic church.
