Transcript of THE MIDDLE AGES

The Middle Ages, or Medieval Times, in Europe was a long period of history from 500 AD to 1500 AD. That's 1000 years!
Feudal system
This system consisted of kings, lords, knights and peasants. The people who were part of the church played an important part also. When a person was born into a certain group, they rarely moved to another level.

The Middle Ages began about 1500 years ago.
During this period, two main cultures lived on the Iberian Peninsula: Christian culture and Islamic culture.
The Iberian Peninsula was divided into kingdoms.
Each kingdom had a king.
During the Middle Ages knights wore a heavy armour made of metal.
There were two ways that a man could become a knight during the Middle Ages. The first was earning the right on the battlefield. If a soldier fought particularly bravely during a battle or war, he may be awarded knighthood by the king, a lord, or even another knight. The second way was to become an apprentice to a knight and earn the title through hard work and training.

Their government and society was based around the feudal system.

There were two main types of music -
Secular music
was made up of folk songs and ballads, many of which were sung by wandering musicians called troubadours. These were mostly song about love or great valor in battle. The secular musicians sang and accompanied themselves with all kinds of instruments.
Religious music
was performed without instrument accompaniment. It was sung or chanted by monks. This music is called plainchant or Gregorian chant.
The majority of the literature produced during the Middle Ages was written by religious clerics and monks.
Few other people knew how to read and write. Much of what they wrote was hymns, or songs, about God. Some also wrote philosophical documents about religion.
The Glosas Emilianenses are important documents from the 12th century that show some of the first examples of writing in Spanish and Basque.

Middle Age art can be divided up into three main periods and styles:
Byzantine Art, Romanesque Art,
Gothic Art
. Most of the art in Europe during the Middle Ages was religious art with Catholic subjects and themes.
