Answer by Huh?
hmm..
This is just a guess
but
I assumed the women and slaves were treated as maids and the men were supposed to be brave and be the care takers as the women has kids and cooked and cleaned and no rights so the slaves were probably treated worse.But im not good history so dont rely on my answer as much.

When did the Catholic church lose most of its political power?

Question by Symbol: When did the Catholic church lose most of its political power?
I posted this in “religion” and got a bunch of opinions as answers. I’m looking for an actual date in history for when the Catholic church stopped having the power to wage wars across continents (with the Muslims for example – and others). And when did it stop having the ability to make laws that European nations abided by? Thanks for any help.

You can probably point at when the Church split, and operated a second “Rome” in Constantinople. Thus, there were two Churches with two Popes, so each one had limited power since you had to choose sides.

They insist they are just a group of friends, yet they funnel millions of dollars through tax-free corporations. They claim to disdain politics, but congressmen of both parties describe them as the most influential religious organization in Washington. They say they are not Christians, but simply believers.

Behind the scenes at every National Prayer Breakfast since 1953 has been the Family, an elite network dedicated to a religion of power for the powerful. Their goal is “Jesus plus nothing.” Their method is backroom diplomacy. The Family is the startling story of how their faith—part free-market fundamentalism, part imperial ambition—has come to be interwoven with the affairs of nations around the world.
