ABSTRACT
An essay from the book "Essays on Twentieth-Century German Drama and Theater: An American Reception 1977-1999" is presented. It examines the play 'Gregor und Heinrich' by Erwin Guido Kolbenheyer which is centered on the historical conflict between Heinrich IV and newly appointed Pope Gregor VII. The conflict is due to the obedience and loyalty of 'das Volk,' which each man thinks belongs to him. The 11th century is the setting in which the story of the play takes place. The play is not a flashback of actual events, but a circumstance in which characters could dramatize those conflicting moments.
