Transcript: Middle ages Photo based on: 'horizon' by pierreyves @ flickr What was a monk? The word monk comes from Greek roots and means a person who practices religious asceticism, living either alone or with any number of other monks, while always maintaining some degree of physical separation from those not sharing the same purpose. The concept is ancient and can be seen in many religions and in philosophy. That is what a monk is. Who were serfs? Serfs were just peasants there is not much to say about them. Serfs were not slaves, serfs got a little bit of the food they planted. Serfs were tied to the land they lived on. Serfs as I said before were just peasants but, they were not slaves. Who was Saint Patrick? Saint Patrick was about 16; he was captured by Irish raiders and taken as a slave to Ireland, where he lived for six years before escaping and returning to his family. After entering a church Patrick returned to Ireland as an ordained bishop in the N, W of the island. Saint Patrick’s Day is on March 17 the day he died. What was a Manor? Manors were sort of like a castle but much smaller. The manor would have belonged to the lord. The manor was the lord’s castle home and served for other purposes. The manor probably held the people during war with other lords land. The manors could be big and I am not joking. Explain feudalism Feudalism was like a pyramid. At the top was royalty, royalty consisted of kings, queens, princesses, and princes. Just below that were lords, lords owned some of a part of land and gave it away to knights in return for crops and protection. Below lords were knights, knights were given a patch of land in exchange for protection to the lord and food for the lord. Then at the very bottom sat serfs, serfs were just peasants. Explain what the middle ages were. Centuries of Roman rule in Western Europe came crashing down. In 476 A.D. the Emperor was driven from his throne by barbaric enemies. There starts’ the early middle ages. Many terms have been used for that particular time period Dark ages, Middle Ages, Medieval Ages All these terms. The middle ages was a time for war, castles, jousting, jokers, Kings, Queens, princes, princesses and so much more. Who was Charlemagne? Charlemagne was a great emperor of the middle ages he tried to bring Rome back from its fall. He also brought back classical learning. Charlemagne was a great leader. He was a great leader in battle too. He did not have much education himself but he opened many schools. Charlemagne as I stated before was a great leader who brought back classical learning even though he did not have schooling himself he opened many schools. Kings and queens Kings and queens were royalty. They had fine clothes and lovely feasts. They lived in a castle as sturdy as steel. They gave their lords land they gave orders too. They had so much fun. Until war came. During war time the king had to stay in his fortress. There in the tower (his bedroom) he could do his work by the fire the queen, she had other business to attend to. What years in history did it cover? The middle ages occurred about 1000 A.D to about 1500A.D. Scientists have recorded records of their writing and they have found out about their trends and styles of writing. The middle ages occurred also after the fall of Rome. What were knights? Knights were people who fought on horseback and had a lot of money so they could train on horseback. Knights in Europe were called the most elite soldiers. Knights fought in wars and killed many people. Knights were well respected and were depended on for protection

Mongols Music Sufism arose in the 600's as a reaction against the material comfort of the Umayyad's, the first great dynasty to rule the empire (661-750) following Muhammad's death.
