Pope Benedict XII dies in Avignon, France. He had wanted to return the papacy to Rome, but the chaotic political situation made that impossible. He was also a reformist pope who tried to put an end to the luxuries enjoyed by monastic orders.
Yet at the same time, Pope Benedict XII started construction of the grand papal palace at Avignon. That's not the sort of action of someone who doesn't want the papacy to be there any longer than necessary or who objects to clerics living extravagantly.
