As I said, he is nasty, I'll go further and add that he's extensively and excessively critical of the church.  It is hard to imagine why he was allowed to teach at Notre Dame, and why his books are still assigned as texts.  But he has a lot of data which is not otherwise readily available.  I think he's in pretty much the same category as Bokenkotter and Durant.  Durant reportedly converted to Catholicism at the end of his life, but it is hard for me to imagine given his outspoken atheism and apparent communism.  O'Brien is much more clear and readable than the others.

Henry III was Holy Roman Emperor from 1046 until 1086.   
In 1046 he ended the papal schism and freed the Vatican from dependence on the Roman nobility.

Louis IV reigned as Holy Roman Emperor from 1328 to 1347.   
In January 1328, Louis entered Rome and had himself crowned emperor by the senator   
Sciarra Colonna, called captain of the Roman people.
