The central Catholic Church was realized under the Pope and In the Middle Ages the pope was the head of the Christian Chruch. Because nearly everyone went to church, the pope had great power. People saw the pope as God's representative on Earth. They looked to the pope for guidance on how to live and pray. Since the pope was seen as God's representative, it was his duty to decide what the church would teach. From time to time, a pope would write a letter called a bull to explain a religious teaching or outline a church policy. This gave the pope the power to decide when someone was acting against the church. One punishment for acting against the church could be to be excommunicated, from the church. This punishment was greatly feared because they believed that people who died while excommunicated would not get into heaven.
