Read the following excerpt from a decree issued by Pope Boniface VIII in 1302. Then answer the questions that follow.

“The apostles said ‘behold here are two swords.’ Both swords, the spiritual and the secular, are under the power of the Church. One should be wielded for the Church, the other by the Church; the one by the hand of the priest, the other by the hand of kings and knights, but at the will of the priest. One sword moreover ought to be under the other, and the secular authority should be subjected to the spiritual.
The spiritual power has to establish the earthly power, and judge it if it be not good. But if a member of the clergy is accused of a crime he should be judged by the Church. The authority to judge, although exercised through man, is not human but rather divine.”
