This assignment provides an opportunity to illustrate your understanding of the changes in political perspectives that the church experienced in the middle to later medieval period.
In a 1,500-2,000-word essay, examine the changes in the church’s theological understanding of its relationship to the political realm from the time of Constantine’s Empire to the Investiture Controversy. Engage in an explanation of Eusebius of Caesarea’s justification of Constantine’s reign as the fulfillment of Christ’s kingdom, Augustine’s eschatological distinction between the City of God and the earthly church and state, the development of the one kingdom, two administrations doctrine in Pope Leo I, and Gregory VII’s Dictatus Papae. Explain these shifts in theories and their relationship to political circumstances at the time.
Your paper should cite relevant portions from the textbook, at least one primary source (e.g., Augustine’s De Civitate Dei), and three additional secondary sources on church-state relationships (either peer-reviewed journal articles, monographs, or history textbooks that devote considerable space to an analysis of church-state relationships).
Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the Turabian Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
