Transcript of P7MA

Middle Ages R.e.c.i.p.e religon Enviroment Culture Inventions politics Economy In Europe during the Middle Ages the only recognised religion was Christianity, in the form of the Catholic religion. The lives of the Medieval people of the Middle Ages was dominated by the church. From birth to death, whether you were a peasant, a serf, a noble a lord or a King - life was dominated by the church. Various religious institutions became both important, rich and powerful. The lives of many Medieval people were dedicated to to the Catholic church and religion. These are all detailed in the following links all of which relate to Middle Ages Religion. Some people say that the cause of the fall of the Roman empire in the West around 400 AD was a change in the climate, which caused famines and plagues and made people unhappy with their government. It is true that there was a cold period around this time in Western Europe, but it probably came a little later, in the 500's and 600's AD, too late to be the cause of the fall of Roman government. In the feudal system society was organized as a pyramid of sorts. The clergy and nobles were at the top, with a great many peasants at the bottom. Peasants worked on the land and lived in rough huts, which they often shared with their animals. They slept on straw mattresses on the floor. In the middle were the scientists, merchants, craftsmen and yeoman farmers. The crusaders experienced Eastern culture and lifestyle and brought back to Europe some inventions developed in this part of the world including silk, gunpowder, the compass and the astrolabe. Religion --that is the Catholic Church--played a major part in government and many bureaucrats were drawn from among the clergy. In Europe, Monastic orders such as the Cistercians wielded considerable political power, with the co-founder st. Bernard being a particularly important figure responsible for rallying support for the Second Crusade. After the fall of Rome, people used money less than they had before, and instead mostly lived on what they could produce themselves, or what they could make other people give them because they were landlords or landladies. b by Kevin Povlsen thanks for reading my prezi !!!!
