The Avignon Papacy was the period from 1309 to 1376 during which seven popes resided in Avignon, France. This arose from the conflict between the Papacy and the French crown.     A deadlocked conclave finally elected Clement V, a Frenchman, as pope in 1305. Clement declined to move to Rome, remaining in France, and in 1309 moved his court to the papal enclave at Avignon. This absence from Rome is sometimes referred to as the "Babylonian Captivity of the Papacy".
