If you read the article on the Western Schism in the Catholic Encyclopedia, it is very clear in stating that the people at the time each took their sides and stuck with it. They didn't just throw up their hands and say the Pope can't be known.

You did notice that I said 'average Catholic'? The is no doubt of course that the elite, the Kings, Princes, Bishops, and major Abbots would have taken a side and stuck with it, but as Aquinas implies the average Catholic probably didn't even know who the Pope was. It was of no concern to them. Their only concern was the sanctification of their own soul and the souls of those for which they were responsible.
