Medieval Europe
By: Noah Skalada The main church in Europe during the Middle Ages was the Roman Catholic Church. The leader of this church was called the Pope. Monks and Nuns had three main jobs which were work, study, and prayer. Monks kept the ancient teachings of the past alive to this day, monks also ran schools and hospitals. Pope Urban II told the knights that they should go fight for the Holy Land. The Holy Land is where Jesus lived. These wars were called "Crusades". This religion is still practiced today. the people of Europe lived, worked and died by a social and governmental system known as "Feudalism". The highest in the class was the Kings, Emperor, and the Pope. They lead and controlled Europe in the system of Federalism. Next in line was nobility Which provide military service and protection on demand. Then there were the knight, and they also provided military service, but also provided food. so when they were needed in war for extra, they were called in. Technology advances

It was also a time that created a lot of simple inventions like hour glasses, eyeglasses, liquor, and tide mills which was a specialist type of water mill driven by tidal rise and fall. 476-1453 medieval times Middle Times is the European historical period from the 5th to the 15th century (476-1453). During this time, a lot of weapons were created in order for European's to defend themselves from the invasion of England. Also, this was a time of cathedrals, which were like castles, but a lot bigger, manuscripts that were used before the invention of printing presses, monks and friars.

Location Europe’s location and resources helped determine the groups of people who settled there. Europe’s landmass lay at the western end of the Eurasian landmass. This part of Europe extended from present-day Portugal to China. Parts of Great Britain, Spain, France, Italy and Greece had been within the Roman Empire. Europe had many resources where it was located. The oceans and seas that surrounded much of Europe were very important resources as well as forests that covered a lot of western and eastern Europe. Large rivers in Europe also provided food. Medieval Europe would have been a good place to live during that time period. Religion Social structure Organization of Government Feudalism was the leading way of political and economic life in the Medieval Europe. Monarchs, like kings and queens, maintained control and power by the support of other powerful people called lords. Lords were always men who owned big homes, called manors.
