What were the problems besetting the Church in the tenth and eleventh centuries? One of the problems was lay control. Lay control was when knights and and lords and such would dictate monasteries and churches. What was ‘moderate reform’?  An example of “moderate reform” was the papacy of Pope Leo IX. The reform was moderate because he still let lay men elect church officials he just told them to pick good ones.

Describe the events that took place during the conflict between Pope Gregory VII and Henry IV? The conflict between Pope Gregory VII and Henry IV was over who elects church officials. What was at stake?  The office of Pope and other high church offices were at stake because Henry wanted to choose who was in charge and Gregory said other church officials should choose.

What was Christendom? Christendom was the international society that was formed by the Christian community as a whole. This is why many church leaders would move across many countries to help spread the word or help other Christians in another country. Sanctions would also apply throughout the entire Christian community not just one particular church or monastery.
