Inside a catholic church during all of the reformation.
The real Indulgences that the churches sold.
The Pope had a lot of power during this time period but they abused it all the time. The Pope could over rule anything or anybody during this time period because everything was still focused on Church. If the Pope say someone who was doing something that they wont supposed to be doing, like something against the Churches rules they couldn't do. The Pope can Excommunicate them and the person can no longer be apart of that Church or go to heaven.
