Excommunicated

A procedure authorised by the Pope in Rome. Excommunication takes place when a member of the clergy or Catholic faith commits a crime that is considered so serious as to be against the interests of the that faith. An example was the replacement of the Norman Archbishop of Canterbury - Robert of Jumieges by Stigand in 1052 A.D. This was considered totally unacceptable by Rome because you cannot replace an Archbishop that is still alive. Stigand was therefore excommunicated.
