During this time the Catholic Church was controlled by corrupt leaders. These leaders were greedy misers who preyed on the innocents and successfully drained less-fortunate peasants into poverty. The Church emphasized giving money more than giving faith in the Church. Leaders did not call for traditional Church practices, but they did develop new greedy ones. Fortunately, the problem was addressed with the Council of Trent in northern Italy. They distinguished proper Catholic doctrines from the Protestant errors.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
