Investiture Fights

The symbiosis between the (Catholic) church and the state has reached new heights: Mr Sándor Kiss, major of Kistelek, has asked (and received) permission from the local representatives to ask the bishop for a new priest, as the present one is old and tired. The priest himself, Ferenc Laczkó doesn’t feel tired and would like to continue his work for another few years. He considers the major’s step an interference with internal church affairs and believes the “problem” is that he is too strict and requires couples to actually attend the required lessons before he marries them in church.
