The Papal Monarchy

Oxford University Press

An enriched vocabulary of papal power was becoming evident. The right of the curia to hear appeals from all church courts was extended. At the same time the effective control of the local churches was put increasingly into the hand of the bishops. The power of the bishops and the intervention of the popes led to conflicts over the crown's attempts to control the national churches, illustrated in an extreme form in the Becket affair.

Keywords:   appeals, Becket, episcopal authority, fullness of power, Henry II, plenitudo potestatis, two swords, vicar of Christ
