Excommunicate: clarify that the defender of the faith can't be excommunicated even if the papal states don't exist
{{Hatnote|For the country itself, see the [[Papal States]].}}
{{Hatnote|For the government form, see [[Theocracy#Papacy|Papacy]].}}
[[File:PapacyScreen.jpg|thumb|right|300px|The Papacy]]
The institution of the Papacy is the religious center of the [[Religion#Catholic|Catholic]] faith and a moral authority for all Catholic nations. It is 'located' in the Papal States, but is separate from the country and can reform elsewhere by event if the country no longer exists, via event for any Catholic theocracy with more than one province. Cardinals now appear at random or appear via events in provinces with at least 10 Development. Each country can have at most 7 cardinals. One nation is designated the current '''Papal Controller''', also known as the '''Curia Controller''', earning bonuses and able to use its power diplomatically (see below).
The Papacy can be disabled if the Papal States form the [[Papal State#Declare the Kingdom of God|Kingdom of God]], or if any Orthodox nation Byzantium [[Byzantine_missions#Restore_the_Pentarchy|restores the pentarchy]]. == Curia Controller =={{SVersion|1.29}}New Curia Controller is elected whenever the Pope (ruler of the Papal State) dies. When this happens, every country that has at least 10 invested influence can be chosen as Curia Controller in accordance with a formula:::<math>\text{chance to be chosen} = \frac\text{influence invested by this country}{\sum \text{influence invested by any country}}</math>
Current chance is displyed in the '''Chance''' column in the Papacy view. ===Benefits==={{SVersion|1.2329}}
The Curia Controller will gain the following bonuses:<ref>See in {{path|common/static_modifiers/00_static_modifiers.txt}} ([[Static modifiers#Curia controller]]).</ref>
{{#lst:Static modifiers|CuriaController}}
* Special diplomatic actions (listed under ''papal actions'') available during the {{icon|age of discovery}} Age of Discovery and {{icon|age of reformation}} Age of Reformation
=== Papal actions ==={{SVersion|1.2329}}
The Curia controller gains several diplomatic actions available for use during the {{icon|age of discovery}} Age of Discovery and {{icon|age of reformation}} Age of Reformation. As a base requirement, these actions require the {{flag|Papal States}} (if exists) to have a negative {{icon|opinion}} opinion of the targeted nations.
==== Excommunicate ====Excommunication requires the targeted nation to be Catholic, and for the [[Papal States]] to have a {{red|negative}} opinion of them. The targeted nation cannot be the Defender of the Faith. If the Papal States do not exist this the negative opinion requirement is waived and the Curia Controller can excommunicate any Catholic rulerthat is not the Defender of the Faith. Excommunication gives every neighbouring Catholic nation a [[Casus Belli]] against the targeted nation.
'''Excommunication penalties'''
* {{icon|relation}} {{red|-200}} Relation with Catholic theocracies
==== Call a crusade ====
The Curia controller can also call a crusade against a single target. This target must be a [[heathen]] and the [[Papal States]] must have an opinion of {{red|-50}} or below of the target. Catholic nations that border the crusade target receive a [[Casus Belli]] against it, and ''all'' Catholic nations at war with the crusade target receive bonuses to [[manpower]], [[Morale of armies|morale]], [[prestige]] and yearly papal influence while they are at war with them, controls at least 1 province owned by the crusade target and the Army Maintenance slider is at maximum. Crusades may no longer be called as of the {{icon|age of absolutism}} Age of Absolutism, but if a crusade called before it starts hasn't expired yet, it will continue to stay in effect until 30 years have passed since its start, as before.
== The Curia ==
The Curia is the administrative body of the Catholic Church overseen by a group of cardinals. There are '''49 seats''' in the Curia, and a new cardinal will be inducted on the first day of each year should any seat be empty. New cardinals are randomly selected from among the Catholic provinces of Catholic nations. Cardinals are loyal to the Catholic ruler who has ownership of their province, so it is possible to earn the allegiance of more cardinals through conquest. The primary benefit of controlling more cardinals is to increase one's papal influence. Per cardinal controlled, you gain 0.5 Papal Influence per year.
===Cardinal selection===
The top ten Catholic provinces in Catholic nations except {{flag|The Papal State}} will compete for empty seats in the Curia. The chance of a cardinal being picked from any province can be seen in the tooltip over the ''Active Cardinals'' ribbon in the papacy interface. Factors that affect cardinal selection chance are as follows:
