The State of the Church (Latin: status Ecclesiae), officially known as the Papal State, is a nation in central Europe in the Italian peninsula. The state is a collection of territories under the direct rule of the pope, the leader of the worldwide Roman Catholic Church. The state was first established in the 8th century, and remained to the present day, except for a temporary transformation into the Roman Republic by Napoleon in 1797 during the French Revolutionary War. The Roman Republic remained a French client state until 1799, when the Papal State was restored.
