Perhaps Christians were a bit harsh in the spreading of their own religion. They burned witches, but they also died and suffered for their own beliefs. They too were tortured and persecuted by the Romans. The Bible teaches that. But does it really matter why Christianity is so popular? You must choo…se your own path. You must choose for yourself what you think is right. I strayed from Christianity to pursue Wicca. A pagan religion. Pagans did sacrifice people a long time ago. So yes, there is something wrong with every religion. No one is perfect. Not Christians. Not wiccans. No one. We are all human. Answer Nobody had been able to unite Europe, primarily because of their divergent beliefs. Constantine mandated that all Europeans accept his "Universal" religion, which was a melding of the many belief systems with a minor sect of Judaism. The religion became "popular" because if you refused to join it, you were executed. ( Full Answer )
They work with a lot of metals and because of medieval blacksmiths we have the doors we use today and the metal tools we also use. They sometimes wear leather aprons and mainly old clothes. They get money for the things they make, mainly tools made out of metal.
They did what any other guard would do. If they worked in a castle they would guard the gates of a castle.
Christianity spread relatively slowly throughout the Roman Empire until the early fourth century, when Emperor Constantine gave the religion state patronage. The Roman Empire included much of southern and western Europe, and Christianity also became well established in these areas by the fourth cent…ury. The early Middle Ages, also known as the Dark Ages, began shortly after Christianity finally became the state religion of the empire in the 380s and then worship was banned in pagan temples in 391 CE. So, much of Europe was essentially Christian well before the start of the Medieval Age. What remained was to Christianise the pagan northern and eastern regions of Europe. There was no real attempt to achieve this by peaceful means, but enslavement and conquest gradually increased the area under Christian control until, finally, all of Europe was Christian.

Medieval Europe began about 500 A.D. and ended to become the Renaissance in about 1500 A.D. The Holy Roman Empire fell in 476 A.D. which was the start to the Medieval Age.
Some medieval women were abused, and some were not. Medieval times were no different than other times and places. In some places the laws did not protect women well, but there were a lot of places where there were specific laws to protect women from abusive husbands and other family members. Also, n…early everywhere in Christian Europe, any women could get protection in the sanctuary of a convent. As to why women were abused in Medieval Europe, the reasons have not changed. This is a complicated question dealt with by people ranging from sociologists to psychologists. ( Full Answer )
Their role was to protect their kings land and people. But because they did they would get a piece of land.
Most people. Medieval fairs were usually held on feast days when there could be a high turnout.

\nChristianity and Islam were the two biggest religions (Judaism was third) in medival Europe. The Christians saw the Jews as sinners because "they killed Jesus" and the Islamics as infidels who worshiped a false god. Islam was actually theonly peaceful religion... until they cast the Christians out… of the holy land. This started the Crusades, which boosted both religion's honor, since anyone who died in the crusades went to heaven. ( Full Answer )
They weren't originated in Europe. They spread there from the middle-east. Trade between regions, as well as wars of conquest, were largely responsible for the dispersal of both people and culture. Islam and Christianity both trace their roots to Judaism. All three are, in fact, merely different …branches of the same monotheistic religion. ( Full Answer )
Neither Christianity nor Isalm orignated in Europe. Christianity Originated in Judea (modern day Israel) and Islam originated in Mecca (modern day Saudi Arabia)
Answer Europe's feudal system arose around the ninth and tenth centuries. Feudalism was based on an agreement between a lord, or landowner, and a vassal, a person who received land from a lord. In exchange for land, or a fief, a vassal promised to help his lord in battle. under feudalism, society i…n western Europe was divided into three groups. Those who fought were the nobles and knights. Those who prayed were the officials of the church. Those who worked were the peasants. Peasants were by far the largest group. Most peasants were serfs, who were not free to move about as they wished. They were tied to the land of their lord. More The clergy (people of the church) and the pope had much power and they took advantage of that. In the Middle Ages almost everything was based on the Christian/Catholic religion. This made the church VERY powerful in the feudal system. It made them almost as powerful as kings or queens. The serfs (peasants) were very poor and they would get food WHEN IT'S AVAILABLE TO THEM. The feudal system or feudalism is basically the same thing as the social hierarchy or the social pyramid. ( Full Answer )
People in the middle ages who were of the peasant class werefocused on survival. They were loyal to the king and to the lord oftheir manor.
Actors were the monks and they told the bible stories in passion plays. The guilds in the late middle ages often took over the cost and the acting in the passion play under the direction of the church.
In rudimentary houses or cottages usually in villages, which are often still villages centuries later. Most of the presently occupied areas of western Europe were already settled by 1300,
It probably rose from under 5% to nearly 10% over the course of theMiddle Ages.
Feudalism arose in Europe during and after the reign of Charlemagne, during the period of about 750-1000 AD. This was a time when local conditions could arise requiring very quick intervention by military forces. An example of such a condition was a Viking raid, which could happen and be over in a f…ew days. The Carolingian Empire did not have the infrastructure to deal with such problems. Its military forces were designed to be assembled and put on extensive campaigns, which were planned and had logistical support. The new situation required a more decentralized approach as an alternative to a large, permanently maintained, standing army. This was achieved by assigning land to individual lords and knights, who were able to use it to support themselves and small groups of local soldiers.

The daily life of a noble stated at dawn. He would go to mass and say prayers then have breakfast. Next, he would attend to to business matters of his land and reports would be heard regarding estate crops, harvests and supplies. Finances, rents, taxes, customs and dues were also gone over. Complain…ts and disputes regarding tenants would be heard and permission to marry given. Weapons practice took place and then mid morning prayers and a meal. In the afternoon hunting, hawking and inspecting the estate took place. Evening prayers were said and then supper. Bedtime prayers and so was the life of a noble. ( Full Answer )

Very poorly. They were a tenant farmer for the Lord (landlord) and all of their labor went to him. They had small houses that were wattle and daub ( straw, mud, and other things mixed). The house was one room with a fireplace, door, and may or may not have a window. Furniture was sparse. They worked… from sunup to sundown and had very few days off a year ( there were 8 holidays in medieval Europe and they all centered around the church). If they were lucky they had a small strip of land to grow a few vegetables for their own table or to sell to make extra money. They usually were not able to hunt since the land was closed to hunting without permission of the Lord. If caught they could be put to death or in prison. The peasant was heavily taxed and there was a death tax that had to be paid when they died. Life was hard for them. ( Full Answer )

It was a gradual process, but the general consensus is that the Middle ages "started" after the fall of Wester Roman Empire in the end of 5th century and gradually ended with the coming of Renaissance during the 15th century. So, about 1000 years.
Icons were pictures of saints, Jesus, and the like. They were the subject of controversy, because some people believed reverence for them was idolatry, and others believed it was right and proper. People killed each other over this question. Sad.
Prior to the introduction of the three field system, a two field system was used. With the two field system, a field was plowed for a crop every other year, and was allowed to lie fallow on the off years. With the three field system, the fields were allowed to lie fallow every third year, and the cr…ops were changed between crop years. The two field system had 50% of the fields productive at any time, but with the three field system, this was increased to 67%. The effect was to increase the area of land under cultivation by a third. With the increase in the amount of land under cultivation, the farms could provide work for an increased number of farmers, and a larger agricultural surplus to feed people living in towns and cities. There were other factors that also increased agricultural surpluses, including the inventions of the horse collar and the heavy plow. And the result of all of these is that the numbers of people who could devote time and energy to work other than agriculture was more than doubled. ( Full Answer )
The terms medieval and Middle Ages refer to the same time and place, which was Europe of the time between when the West Roman Empire was active and the Renaissance. The terms are used for other times in other places by analogy when they had similar characteristics, such as a feudal pyramid and decen…tralized authority. ( Full Answer )
In medieval Europe, the largest Muslim community was in Spain, especially in the South. Medieval Spain had Christian countries and Muslim countries, but the people of those countries were mixes of Christians, Muslims, and Jews. The time of Muslim government in at least parts of Spain was 711 AD to 1…492. Muslims based in Spain invaded France, but were defeated and withdrew. Sicily was an Arab emirate from 965 to 1072, after which it was captured by Normans and became a Christian Norman kingdom. Parts of Italy were also held by Muslims briefly during the time of the Emirate of Sicily. Muslims were in conflict with the Byzantine Empire during most of the Middle Ages. They occupied large parts of the Balkans by the time the Middle Ages ended, and there are numbers of them still there. For more information, please use the links below. ( Full Answer )
That depends on where in Europe you lived in medieval times. In Britain, you'd speak Old or Middle English. Shakespeare is Middle English, and Old English is closer to German than modern English. Take a look at untranslated Beowulf to get what I'm talking about. However, a general characteristic …of medieval European dialects is that it very rarely resembles their modern counterparts. Medieval dialect is also very measured and elaborate, lots of similes and metaphors...thought that is usually only for the educated and high society. "ye' and "thou" are common terms in Britain even for common folk (well, you gotta' call someone SOMETHING, right?? Can't just shout "You!" and expect someone to know you're talking to them...)

Much of the time the majority of the poorer populous that existed in medieval times were not paid with money, but rather, in return for work usually, their employers paid them in food and shelter - in essence they basically worked for their life; their basic living requirements.

Feudalism is the social system, or structure, usually resembled as a pyramid from the most important to the least important of peoples. In Medieval Europe, this would appear with the Crown at the very top, with all others falling beneath in power. The pyramid normally appears as follows, top to bott…om: (Crown and Lords)-(Nobles and Knights): who serve the Crown with their military strength in exchange for land.-(Tenants): who serve the Knights or Nobles.-(Serfs): the peasant people, who were protected by their lord in exchange for labor and/or a percentage of their produce.

Very roughly the middle ages were from 500 C.E. to 1500 C.E. Sometimes individual will try to pin the start and end dates to specific events, such as the deposition of the last Roman emperor Romulus Augustus in 476 or the fall of Constantinople in 1453, but these division are somewhat artificial. T…he middle ages can be further divided into the Early Middle ages (500-1000 CE) the High Middle ages (1000-1300 CE) and the late middle ages (1300 to 1500 CE). Just as with the start and end dates, the dates of these division are somewhat artificial, and are best seen as general benchmarks of overall social trends, rather than hard, specific dates.

Feudalism is a system in which the government is decentralized, and power is spread among a large number of local lords. It was caused in Europe by problems with maintaining the Carolingian Empire while it was under threat from outside, by such groups as the Vikings, and from within, by internal dis…sent.

There were quite a few countries in Medieval Europe. Britain, Germany, France, Austria, Hungary, etc. Countries rose and fell during that time period so to know exactly what countries existed you would need to know the year.
As the threats from enemies started to dwindle, the need for castles and protection from knights, lords, etc also started to fall. Those who were serfs and worked the land began to own their own land. The knights and Lords had nothing else to do (no wars to lead, battles to plan, etc) so they stayed… home and became more and more educated, bringing the age of enlightenment or the renaissance. The Catholic Church decided to support this movement to understand the world better than before. The Churches set up Universities for men to study their respective fields and others to study under those "professors." The establishment of the University was mainly the responsibility of the Catholic Church. ( Full Answer )
Europe really did not trading in Medieval times, at least in the West. This is because this was the time of the Dark Ages, when Europe was cut off from the rest of the world after the fall of the Roman Empire.
How did the development of Christianity act as a unifying social and political factor in medieval Europe and the byzantine empire?
It allowed the safety of missionaries who taught that a personalrelationship with God was more important. Pagan traditions wereincorporated with Christianity. This allows Christianity to spreadall over Europe.
Medieval European society consisted of a hierarchy. In order of decreasing levels the hierarchy listed kings, nobles, knights, merchants/farmers/craftsmen, and then peasants/serfs.
Another answer from our community: There weren't millions of Christians in medieval Europe for thesimple reason that there weren't "millions" altogether in Europe atthat time. Secondly, the Catholic Church has never tried to justifymurder, it condemns it as against as against the Fifth Commandment…(see first quote below). Finally, I believe that you are askingabout the Inquisition. Everything that you have heard about theInquisition consists of grossly distorted lies and falsehoods thathave been repeated and handed down for centuries, even making itinto the history books in more than a few instances. Very fewpeople were ever actually executed (certainly not "murdered"), andthose that were executed were executed for treason by the civilgovernment NOT by the Church, nor for heresy.

The Roman Inquisition ofthe middle twelfth century, with its ecclesiastical courts fortrying and punishing heretics, arose during the ravages of theanti-social Albigensian sect, whose doctrines and practices weredestructive not only of faith but of Christian morality and publicorder. While Church authorities would condemn a person found guiltyof heresy, it was the civil power that actually inflicted thepenalty. The reformation of the heretic was first sought. Byexhortations and minor punishments he was urged to give up hisheresy. Many did. Only the relapsed heretics who were found guiltywere turned over to the civil government for punishment requiredunder civil law. The fact that secular law prescribed death must beunderstood in the light of those days when heresy was anarchy andtreason and leniency in criminal codes was unknown.
