Abuses of the Church, Continued Church services/care of church often neglected by clergy Pluralism Popes Pius II, Sixtus IV, Julius II, Leo X, and Innocent VIII (14501550) used their papal power and wealth to advance the material interests of their families Misused power (excommunication & indulgences) Pope Alexander VI (1492-1503)

Publically acknowledged having a mistress & children Family became the example of moral corruption Church insisted on exemptions from taxation Outside the church, continued Wyclif: Oxford theologian whose teaching inspired the Lollards in England Result: Lollardy became a capital offense in 1401

Hus: rector of the University of Prague, attacked the doctrine of transubstantiation, go vernacular bible Result: Declared a heretic at the Council of Constance, burned as a heretic, 1415 Savonarola: Florentine; shocked by the Borgia popes corruption and widespread secular interests of clergy, preached purification and repentance Result: hanged and burned as a heretic, 1498

French Wars Dutch Revolts England v. Spain Thirty Years War Debate: What played a more important role in these religious conflicts: religion or politics? Be ready to defend your response The Medieval Order began to deteriorate

with the Babylonian Captivity was disrupted by the Protestant Revolt completely ended with the Treaty of Westphalia (1648) longest peace negotiation in history, 1644-1648! BUT In the period between Luther and Westphalia, Habsburgs move to restore the Old Order, Protestants and Catholics in France resist this restoration, and push Europe toward a definition of sovereign states.

Thus Ended the Medieval concept of a universal church and a universal monarch at Westphalia. The need for Protestants and Catholics to tolerate each other was demonstrated because they couldnt kill each other. Sovereign states emerged. Balance of Power concept developed to preserve this sovereignty not to maintain the peace. The Age of Expansion
