CHHI 301 Paper 2 Liberty University
The Rise of the Papacy
In the void left by the collapse of the Roman Empire, the bishop of Rome grew even more in both power and prestige beginning in the 6th–9th centuries. There were both positive and negative ramifications of this reality.
Write a 5-page research paper (12-point Times New Roman font, 1-inch margins on all sides, double-spaced) on how and why the papacy in Rome became the center of power as it did. What factors contributed to its dominance of Western Europe until the Reformation? What were the positive and negative ramifications of this reality?
Use 5 scholarly sources. Your textbook does not count. You may use scholarly websites, but also use at least 2 scholarly articles and/or books.

Be careful to choose scholarly sources; do not use Wikipedia or blogs. If you are uncertain if a source is scholarly, feel free to send an email with the source information to your instructor; he will let you know. Use current Turabian reference styling when preparing your references.
