Posted by Guilhem en marzo 7, During the Early Middle Ages, the Church was influenced by great personalities who were forging the dogma of Christian Faith according to the needs of his time.
From the five patriarchal sees of the late Roman times, the ideological evolution and a series of events such as the advance of Islam and the conquest of the Near East and North Africa by the Arabs, determined that Christianity fall back on its main irradiation baynse We will discuss the main factors that led to the final rupture of ecclesiastical buzantino between East and West churches: During the period when paganism ruled the religious destiny of the Roman Empire, the economic support of the temples devoted to the different gods was included inside the imperial state budget.
Religion, ell building as well as civil and military expenses of the central administration or the care of city walls were state questions just to mention some examples.
The chapter related to the i,perio cult was considered a public service, and as such, it took up a considerable part of the imperial resource budget, about a twenty or thirty percent. This premise was so rooted in the Roman ideological conscience that when Christianity became licit after the tolerance edict of the yearchurch building turned into an obligation as it had been up to then, and the construction of pagan temple would also be bizanrino.
For such a reason it could be said that both church and state, being autonomous, were not separable. The edict of bizqntino Christianity to the official religion rank, and the emperors, as they had previously done with paganism and other beliefs, considered the Church as a public service and the church buildings as public sites: All in all, such a big generosity had its dark side: In other words, the emperors had the right to act above a stock of ecclesiastic goods which they still considered state property.
This explains why the bayned remained so docile to a mechanism that was firstly used by Julian the Apostate and secondly highly used in the High Medieval Times by both Charlemagne and the Byzantine emperors, the confiscations.
Neither the church was against a much more dangerous practice carried out by the ones who held the temporal power: These would come up above all in times of the first ecumenical and visigothic council.
In other words, in the years and especially in the church accepted that the emperors took the control immperio vicars of God on the Earth.
This was highly influenced by sacred figure of the emperor proposed under the pagan kingdom of Diocletian and later enthusiastically adopted by Constantine I the Great.
Acting accordingly, the emperor Justinian I would later support the premises of the vicarage of God stated before:. This program would also be copied in the Visigothic Spain once Reccared  had changed Aryanism by Catholicism, with the help of Isidore of Seville Bishop. As expected, the concept of royalty would be appropriated by the heads of kingdoms and empires that would be leader The West along the Early Middle Ages. Apart from being a mirror baynws civilization, Byzantium was a center which came up with ideas.
The barbaric kingdoms that followed the Western Roman Empire, despite trying to keep the ideological statuo quo, were far from being as powerful as the Caesars state. Whereas the Romans had gained the respect and fidelity of the people as they exhibited their powerful armies, the German kings would rather have distributed the fiscal lands with the same purpose.
In this way, when their stocks of lands were decimated, they had to look for a way to support themselves impefio as Rex et Sacerdos but as primus enter pares.
So far, the five patriarchal jurisdictions which existed, Constantinople, Rome, Antakya, Alexandria and Jerusalem, had been fighting over the supremacy without any significant result. Three of them had literally gone out of competition due to the breaking in of the Islam in the territories over which they had their influence: Antioquia, Jerusalem and Alexandria.
Instead, Constantinople, as the residence of the only universal Roman emperor and Rome, as the venue of St Peter Vicar on Earth, went on fighting over the privilege immperio universality without getting more from what they had gotten so gar. This was up to the moment when the conspiracy of the two facts allowed the Roman headquarters to go hizantino and get rid of the God Vicar domination held by the Byzantine emperors: Without considering a third element that had been firmly establishing the presence of the church as a determinant factor in the occidental world: I will not say much about this apocryphal document that was made clear as shamelessly false.
The text had been written in first person; It could almost be said that it is Constantine the Great who writes, after becoming Christian. While he was ill with leprosy, pagan priest suggested him to take baths with children blood so as to inflect the evil and recover good health.
Both of them urged him to set off to the Roman Bishop so that he can free Constantine from the leprosy. The pope Silvestre baptized him and the result is well-known: Constantine is cured and renounces to paganism. The following ones are the passages that I consider substantial for the topic being discussed:. Thus, by means of what it was later learnt, it was a shameful falsification, the Roman bishop exposed indirectly his temporal ambitions taking profit mainly of two questions: The necessities of the Church and the candidates to the French crown were attached extraordinarily well and the result appeared not long after, under a new order format.
When it is talked about the dark centuries of the Church it is advisable to distinguish to which geographic scope we are referring to, and thus, to which Church we are mentioning. One thing is what happened buzantino Byzantium between the V and IX centuries and another totally different one is what happened to the other side of the Adriatic Sea.
As regards the influence of the Oriental Roman Empire, the oriental church went on strongly linked to the emperor, although every so often it afforded the shudder of new umperio positions that later became into heresy such as monofhisitism, monothelitism, and the iconoclasm.

The leading figure of basileus went on personifying the same thing that Justinian defended in the past: The intromission of the secular power in the spiritual sphere was such that both monothelitism and iconoclasm were creations made by the emperors so as to save the differences that had came up from the inside of the Oriental Church monothelitism, in biizantino case or bring up dramatically the influence of Islam in Christianity through the destruction of sacred images iconoclasm.
Anyway the oriental sovereigns were doing nothing apart from exercising the vicarage of God. In the West, the situation was radically opposed. The Roman bishop, who was orphan from an eminent power since the Roman fall inalternated good and bad moments as one more clergyman among the various headquarters that had already started to fight over his power: It imperlo a difficult times for the popes marked by the Visigoth efforts to create a theocracy in the best Byzantine style, where the king was the one who named the bishops.
The program was originally made by Reccared and Leandro of Seville and continued by others important bishops impeerio kings. The project could have conducted to the establishment of a national Church independent from Rome, but the Arabian burst in and truncated it. Since then, the popes could arrogate the right to transfer the royal dignity from one family to the other one.
Something did become evident: But Louis the Merciful  fairly deserved his name because he completely changed the ecclesiastic politic of his father.
Together with the assistance of a multifunctional Benedict of Aniane, they both got the general reform of the monastic order fostering the Benedictine rule. Said with other words, the regular clergy recovered again the eminent role of worship and prayer.
As basis of the Gregorian reformation, the free election of the abbot was where the change proposed by Louis was mainly seen, something that brought out the rejection of the land owners.
With Otto I the Great instead, the bishop investiture turned again into a fundamental political tool. The Kirchensytem assured the German Emperor a series of benefits when turning the bishops into imperial agents in the cities, and into count-bishop in the counties. The main advantage in this latest case was that when the bishop-count died, both the bishopric and the county passed automatically to the king.
That is, by jorman of this practice, the German emperors avoided the smashing of fiscal lands that had been one of the main factors which led the Carolingian Empire to bizangino banishment.
On the other side, the bishop-counts, duly managed, were crucial to influence in the great counties of Bavaria, Swabia, Franconia, and Saxony, and indirectly, to play a fundamental role in the rl of the emperor. Anyway, as it happened before with Louis the Merciful, the Occidental Church was an excess of manipulation and robbery thanks to the laity faithful to the reform established by Louis. As an option to the secular clergy proposed and fostered by kings and emperors, it normqn introduced the chance of a regular clergy originated in the monasteries where the abbot election was still being free.
In Aquitania, the Cluny monastery funded in by William the Merciful headed the movement and started to leader the tendency that would later conduct the church directly to the reformation of the XI century. Underpinned above an original idea, what Cluny built was a monastic empire where the abbot controlled far away head offices and got an incessant flow of merciful donations.
Meanwhile, he concentrated all his efforts in attacking three bkzantino that affected the church seriously, subscribing the following guidelines:. Speaking about an oriental and an occidental church in the late X century it does not seem correct from the academic point of impetio, since except for the matter of the hh Photios, there still had not appeared transcendental questions that justified a division in its bosom.
El Imperio Bizantino
And however, structurally and ideologically the Rome and Constantinople Churches were diametrically opposed. Although it is true that caesaropapism was a common practice in both jurisdictions as both of them were firmly submitted to the secular power of the kings and emperors, in the East things were a bit clearer as regards the eminent function of the basileus emperor as the Vicar of Nrman over the Earth. The matter of the original doctrine of the two swords never got force in the Byzantine Empire territories, simply because Italy had been subtracted from its authority by the Lombards.
Instead, in the West, it had always existed a latent tension related to the clergy subordination specially from the papacy to people who, although being honorable and worthy, were not ordained priests. Early enough, Saint Ambrose, archbishop of Milan, had already put limits to a surprised Theodosius with an imperuo sentence that reflected the ideological conception or the Roman headquarter: In this way, with a king in each kingdom and only one emperor with so many bishops among which there was a pope in similar level to the rest, the secular and spiritual sword seemed to be held by the same hand the secular one.
By this time, the occidental church was experimenting a deep decentralization that was more evident in the weakness of the pope role which was spread in a very horizontal structure.
A weakness that the German emperors used since Otto I the Great so as to reaffirm their imperial right of being the protectors of Rome, as Constantine and his successor had been for a time. And finally what rescued the papacy from a long medieval night was precisely the assistance of the German imperial power together with the idea brought in by Cluny consisting of an ecclesiastic structure completely regular, trans regional and vertical. The Dictatus Papaeheart of the Gregorian reform, was a manifesto written by monk Hildebrand Gregory VII that contained 27 concise propositions among which we might highlight:.
The ideological weapons exposed by Gregory VII had as the main objective to grab from the German emperor and his Byzantine peer the vicarage of God over the Earth, thus the pope becoming the head of a theocratic state whose laws were complied and applied universally by the earthly powers. In other words, join together under his figure the vicarage of God on the one hand, and the one of Peter on the other hand.
Duly submission and obedience was demanded as a corollary Eastern Schism I should rescue specially those points that refer to what is known as the vicarage of Peter: The belief of being sanctified in the figure of St Peter means that the pope is Peter on Earth. In this way, Gregory is splitting the person who takes the charge from the charge itself. For this reason the papal function is objectively conceived through the charge and subjectively through the person or individual who holds it.
This explains why the legislative acts of a pope would be valid even if the person who occupied the charge was a villain. The East, meanwhile, was also fighting over the vicarage of God, as also here patriarch and emperor fought over the holding of the charge. The Byzantine state had found in Isaac I Komnenos the right person to take the control of the Empire after years of chaos. But his appearance coincided to the moment when another strong personality managed the spiritual life from the patriarchal throne: Despite being together at the beginning out of necessity against Miguel VI, soon harmony disappeared.
The Byzantine historian Michael Attaleiates refers to the dense climate that the kingdom of Komnenos had to go through in the first months: Soon this brought about the enmity with the emperor, who finally considered an insult what he had taken as some advice before.
In this point we might well ask if the vindication of temporal power made by Michael Cerularius was something he did for himself or as a representative of the Oriental Church as a whole. The difference with the west, however, was that in Constantinople the emperors reduced disobedient Cerularius and sent him to exile. Meanwhile in Rome Gregory VII and his successors kept irreducible in front of the German Emperors, to whom they finally forced to give in after the Investiture Controversy.
What was paradoxical in the case of the fights kept along a time by emperors and popes in the West and basileus and patriarchs in the East was that they finally favored to third ones when they took up essential resources to the parts which were directly involved. The French with the matter of Avignon were the ones finally harvested the returns of the Investiture Controversies in the West, while in the West the unscrupulous chiefs of the Fourth Crusade obliged the Byzantine patriarch to go into exile to Nicaea.
He adopted Catholicism inleaving his old belief, Arianism. Gelasius was one of the most enthusiastic defenders of Rome primacy over Constantinople and the others patriarchal sees. The way up to the division between the churches.
