The Curia Controller will gain the following bonuses:
* {{icon|diplomat}} {{green|+1}} Diplomat
=== Excommunicate ===
The Curia controller can excommunicate an enemy any time before 1650. This requires the enemy to be Catholic, and for the [[Papal States]] to have a {{red|negative}} opinion of the target. If the Papal States do not exist this requirement is waived and the Curia Controller can excommunicate any Catholic ruler. Excommunication gives every other Catholic nation a [[Casus Belli]] against them and increases yearly decay of prestige.
=== Call a crusade ===
The Curia controller can also call a crusade against a single target any time before 1650. This target must be a [[heathen]] and the [[Papal States]] must have an opinion of {{red|-50}} 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 after 1650, but if a crusade called before 1650 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 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 Authority per year.
===Papal influence===
Papal influence is earned by all Catholic countries. A country can store at most 200 papal influence.<ref name=defines>See in {{path|common/defines.lua}}</ref> It can be spent in exchange for various benefits.
