The bitter rivalry between Fredrick II and Innocent IV caused them to disagree with anything that concerned either of them Each party tried to debase the other through words and actions In reaction to Fredrick IIs deposition by Innocent IV the banter between the two became increasingly more barbed as they both took stabs as each other Both Fredrick and Innocent through their individual texts agree that church and state are indeed separate organizations Fredrick II portrays the Church as an organization that has overstepped its boundaries Conversely Innocent makes his rebuttal by depicting the State as being inferior or derived from the powers of the Church The views of the Church are strikingly different between Innocent and Fredrick whereas Innocent sees the Church as being the omnipotent force in the world the primacy of apostolic dignity which Peterhad received not from man but from God Tierney 147 He continues by showing that the State has no respect for that power that it has been given in effect showing that State has no respect for its peers Fredrick fundamentally differs in his view of the Church he views the Church as being a nuisance that interferes in temporal matters matters that should be of no concern to the Church Fredrick portrays the Church has being power-hungry trying to undermine the establishment that the State had fought so hard to maintain To continue Fredrick portrays the Church as being ill-suited to their cause the Church was not partaking in their responsibilities of managing religious affairs and was instead more involved with temporal affairs that by no stretch of the imagination fell under the Churchs wing Both Fredrick and Innocent seem to agree that essentially the Church and the State are separate of each other Thus neither says that Church had derived from State or vice-versa In stating this separation the writers make it clear however that by no means are church and state levels Innocent
