PostSubject: Babylonian Captivity   Sun May 08, 2011 10:48 pm

The reign of Edward III coincided with the so-called Babylonian Captivity of the papacy at Avignon. During the wars with France, opposition emerged in England against perceived injustices by a papacy largely controlled by the French crown.[70] Papal taxation of the English Church was suspected to be financing the nation's enemies, while the practice of provisions the Pope providing benefices for clerics caused resentment in the English population. The statutes of Provisors and Praemunire, of 1350 and 1353 respectively, aimed to amend this by banning papal benefices, as well as limiting the power of the papal court over English subjects.[71] The statutes did not, however, sever the ties between the king and the Pope, who were equally dependent upon each other.[72]
