Nicholas I

Nicholas I was the Roman Pontiff from 858-867. For Nicholas, the Roman Church is both the head and the epitome of the Universal Church. It alone has all power by divine commission. As both the sacerdotal and royal functions were conferred by Christ on St. Peter, so they are exercised by St. Peter's successors, the popes. The sword of temporal power is delegated to the emperor for the protection of the church. Thus the teaching of Nicholas contained in embryonic form the complete doctrine of papal theocracy. Charlemagne was the highest worldly authority in his empire, but when he died, the popes made themselves the heirs of that power. Pope Nicholas I really founded the papal monarchy.
[EB, 142]
