Chruch and State relations/conflicts

I need to write a paper on church and state relations and conflicts.

I was wondering if someone could help me out and name some primary topics that i can talk about. They must be in the 800-1122 years.

One of them that i will talk about is lay investiture. But i need some more topics. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

You should look up Canosssa in the 11th century where some King or Emperor had to do public penance to the Pope-the Italian playwright Pirandello wrote a famous play based on this incident but I've forgotten its title-so check out Pirandello on the website.
Good luck!.

Gregory VII to do penance over some Investiture dispute .They met at Canossa in the 11th century. So check it out.

Church and State in the Middle Ages.

The scholarship may be a little dated but a table of contents always makes a great outline.

Hope it helps.

If you don't have this bookmarked already, this site contains important medieval primary sources, and the link below is to its Empire & Papacy primary sources:

Internet History Sourcebooks

It is later than your centuries specified, but this short, concise survey of the period itself (probably required course reading still, iirc) will have a valuable bibliography: [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0802067018/sr=1-1/qid=1352474425/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=&qid=1352474425 &seller=&sr=1-1"]The Crisis of Church and State: 1050-1300, with selected documents (Medieval Academy Reprints for Teaching, 21): Brian Tierney: 9780802067012: Amazon.com: Books@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51LsCjS-2eL.@@AMEPARAM@@51LsCjS-2eL[/ame]

Read the reader reviews section of this book ^ on the Amazon link for a few other topic ideas. Invocation of the Donation of Constantine to attempt to bolster papal primacy, Roman resistance to Byzantine caesaropapism, the violence during the 10th century and the beginnings of the papal schism in 1054. Also the example of powerful abbeys like Cluny in Burgundy, and the creation of the College of Cardinals in 1059 are interesting outcomes of the medieval conflict between church and state.

A very interesting process that I have also been reading about lately, though I am not very knowledgable about it. Maybe Dreamweaver, or Kirilax will have a few ideas?
