Role of the Pope in Catholic Church
The pope was the head of the Catholic Church. The pope had an extreme amount of power because he ultimately decided whether or not peoples souls went to heaven or he'll, so everybody followed his religion in hopes of spending an eternity in heaven. People saw the pope as God's representative on Earth. They looked towards the pope for guidance on how to live live their lives which gave him a ton of power. The pope was seen as God's representative, so it was his responsibility to decide what the church would teach.
