What are the Middle Ages?
Wikipedia defines the Middle ages as: The period of European history from the fall of the Roman Empire in the West (5th century) to the fall of Constantinople (a city in Turkey) in 1453.
Started in the 5th century and ended in the 15th century
People were divided into classes
Knights, Kings & Queens, Noblemen, Slaves and Peasants
Based in Europe

Social classes in the Middle Ages
The Royalty were the highest of the Social Classes in the Middle Ages. The Royalty included Kings, Queens, Princes, and Princesses. Royals had complete power over the land and political and economic decisions during the Middle Ages.
After the Royals, Nobility had the most power of the social classes in the Middle Ages. Nobility included hereditary nobility (blood relations) such as Dukes and Barons.
Non-Hereditary Nobility (those who rose to power without any relations) such as Knights, Peasants, Slaves.
Knights were professional warriors who mainly fought on horseback.
Knights came from wealthy families.
Training for knighthood began at eight years of age when a boy was sent to a castle to become a page, a servant to an experienced knight.
They held a very high position in society.
6. The Plague killed lots which was a factor to the end of the Middle Ages era.
Catholic Church
The history of the Catholic Church began with the teachings of Jesus Christ, in the 1st century AD in the province of Judea of the Roman Empire. The Catholic Church says that it is the continuation of the early Christian community started by Jesus. The Bishop of Rome, also known as the Pope, is the sole successor to Saint Peter, who was chosen by Jesus Christ to be the head of the church. By the 3rd century, the bishop of Rome began to act as a court of appeals for problems that other bishops could not resolve.

Carrying on
Christianity spread throughout the early Roman Empire, despite persecutions due to conflicts with the pagan state religion.
In 1380 Christianity became the state religion of the Roman Empire.
After the destruction of the western Roman Empire, the church in the West was a major factor in the preservation of classical civilization, establishing monasteries, and sending missionaries to convert the people back to the Christian lifestyle.
We would like to be inspired by people of the Middle Ages because of their faith and devotion to God. The way the people in the Catholic Church trusted and relied on God is very inspiring and we believe that everyone should aspire to have a faith like these people did.
