Casper Jaudian Political role
The pope was political and religious in the Papal States.
The church has a code of law called, canon law, and its own courts.
The court could also use an interdict.
The church didn’t want anyone to question the basic principles.
The church also had the power to tax and the parish priest would collect a tithe which is 1/10th of a Christians’ income. Economic and social role
The church didn’t approve of making money off of other people. Monks worked in agriculture and some churches were very much into trade.
They also considered that family was the most sacred and divorces were not practiced. During the Middle Ages the church had most of the power and control that government has today.
The church was as great for the economy as it did socially and also had great importance being somewhat like landowners of Europe. The Parish Priest

In the church there are many ranks of clergy with different roles and duties.
The lowest of these ranks would be the parish priest. He would be responsible for a community’s spiritual life and instruction for it.
Although they were the smallest rank, the priests were very important for he could administer five of the seven sacraments or ceremonies which others could receive God’s favor to ward off the consequences of sin.
They were able to do such as baptisms, Holy Communication, penance, and anointing the sick or dying. The Bishop

The bishops were in control of groups of parishes called a diocese, in which they would be at a cathedral in the principle city of the diocese.
Most bishops were controlled by either royalty such as kings or nobles who the bishops themselves were vassals and would likely have vassals themselves.
The bishops preformed the sacraments of confirmation and the taking holy orders. Church leadership

Many groups of diocese would be known as an archdiocese which was managed by an archbishop who had power over all the bishops of the archdiocese.
The person who had all power of the church was the pope who was advised from a group of counselors known as the curia.
The most powerful members of the curia were known as “princes of the church” or the cardinals.
There are few exceptions, but sometimes men no matter of birth could be able to have great power in the church. one knight stand The Secural clergy included the:
