the Church an extremely unattractive choice of career (100-150 thousand
clerics out of 25 million)
The few church men controlled 10% of the land, the land was free from
taxation and was poorly cultivated, serfdom was still practiced on those
lands
Variations of wealth and status among the clergy
The greater office: aristocratic families – dumping ground for extra
children and local control
The aristocratic bishops lived in the court, treated as nobles, and regular
cleric life did not appeal to them
Faithful Catholics were angry with the aristocratic bishops
Free gifts – the Church would give money to the king just to recognize
that the king was a cool guy, protection money, made sure that the Church
would not be subject to regular taxation
Peasants needed more land and money and the practices within the Church
made the furious
The nobility – 400 thousand, ¼ of all the land in the kingdom, if the king
is included then 1/3 of the land is owned by the nobility
Military function – no longer had any meaning, after the expansion of the
warfare
Louis XIV turned the nobility into please sand office seekers who lived at
the court
They had little collective control
