Write an essay of about 1000-1200 (4-5 pages) that uses the source to develop a clear analytical

argument about the problem of secular power, religious authority, and the nature of Christendom.

Your paper should analyze the issues that led to the conflict between Henry II and Thomas Becket

and how William understood these issues, ultimately making an argument about their implications or

significance. Although you are not required to use any other sources for this paper, you may find it

useful to compare these events with those depicted in the Letters Relating to Gregory VII, Henry IV, and

the German Bishops and/or the Speech of Urban II at the Council of Clermont. You may, of course, use

these sources in your paper if you wish.
