December 11, 2007 History 201 – Emory University Final Study Guide Cluny – a Benedictine monastery that became important in church reform of the 10 th century. The pope was named protector the monastery and it became popular because of how it was symbolically the property of St. Peter and because of the elaborate chants that the monks did. Many other powerful men and women called on Cluniac monks to reform their own monastery on the Cluny model. Cluniac abbots believed in celibacy for priests, lay reform (a cease of oppression of the poor.)

The end result of this is that in 1059, Gregory VII supports a papal election decree which forces papal election from lay control – Popes are now elected by Cardinals. Gregory VII – a powerful Pope elected in 1073, he makes several reform attempts including decrees that priests remain celibate and unmarried and lay lords have no control over Papal elections.

In 1099, Franks capture Jerusalem, massacre it’s inhabitants and set up 4 states of Edessa, Antioch, Tripoli and Jerusalem. In 1187, Saladin destroys the kingdom of Jerusalem by defeating the Franks at Hatin.

The Investiture Struggle takes place between the two. In 1075, Gregory suspends German bishops appointed by Henry.
