Why did the Catholic Church lose its power and influence in the Middle Ages?

The Catholic Church lost its power and influence during the Middle Ages due to an increase in the power of kings and queens. People began to shift from being controlled by the Pope to local, regional, and national leaders.


What was a factor in the decline of the Catholic Church during the Middle Ages?

There were a number of things that contributed to the decline of the Catholic Church's power in the Middle Ages. One was the ongoing dispute between the Church and the various governments over who had power. Both sides lost in this. An example is the Investiture Controversy. Another was the East-West schism, which resulted from a dispute over the leadership of the Church. The eastern Church split from the Western, forming the Eastern Orthodox Church. This reduced the prestige of the popes, even in the West. The Black Death caused many people to question the whole idea of religion. Various problems within the Church, including the sale of indulgences, lead to decline in respect for the Church, and eventually to the separation of the Protestant groups from the Catholic Church. Though this is regarded as having happened after the Middle Ages were over, it began long before then.


Was the catholic church more powerful in the Renaissance than the middle ages?

The Catholic Church was more powerful in some places during the Renaissance, and less powerful in others. The general inquisitions, which were introduced as the Middle Ages were ending and the Renaissance beginning, gave the Church broad powers of investigation and punishment in such places as Spain and Portugal. On the other hand, the Catholic Church lost all power in many places, including England and parts of Germany, as Protestant groups took over the churches.

Did the church or the monarchies have more power in the middle ages?

The popes had enormous moral authority, and they could excommunicate kings, but they controlled armies of any size, and were often at the mercy of monarchs. At one time a dispute over political power divided the Roman Catholic Church and there were rival popes in Rome and Avignon. On the other hand, monarchs who tried to exert too much power over the Church sometimes lost. There is a link below for more information.
