Transcript of Compare and Contrast

Medieval Time Period The Middle Ages or Medieval period lasted from the 5th to the 15th century; the prior period being known as the Anglo-Saxon period. This period began with the falling of the Western Roman Empire which then led to the Renaissance and Age of Discovery in the latter. In this time King and Queens ruled the lands and become the leaders of centralized nation states, reducing crime and violence but manipulating the ideas of Christianity which led to more corruption. Two famous leaders from this period are Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth; corrupted England and restored England to its glory, respectively. The Middle Ages was full of dark times, some examples being the treatment of one another depending on social and economic class, corruption within the church, and crime within area; such as rape, murder, and thievery. Irony Primary example is the relationship of the story itself and who is actually telling the story. Symbolism Pardoner's Tale Compare and Contrast:
