Abstract

The salient event in church history in the two hundred years previous to the Protestant Revolution was the decline of the Catholic Church. During the High Middle Ages the Church and its visible head had enjoyed tremendous prestige. In many ways the Church had dominated and controlled the lives of men. This was not to be the case during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries when the Catholic Church and the Papacy were to lose their dominant position and other forces and influences became supreme. If, in many ways, this was an internal decline, visible signs of it were not lacking.
