The Manor System
The manor system was an economic arrangement between the landowner and the peasants(lord and his serfs). The key to this was that the Lord provided housing, farmland, and protection. In return the serfs tended the lords land and took care of the animals and performed other tasks to maintain the estate.
The Catholic Church
The Catholic Church had a big role during the middle ages because heaven was the number one thing people wanted to get to an the kings appointed church bishops.
Problems With the Catholic Church
Religiously problems were that some priests were nearly illiterate and could barely read their prayers. Some of the popes were men of questionable morals. It was socially unacceptable for drinking and people in the church to be getting married against church rulings. Political problems were bishops sold positions in the Church, a practice called simony. Using laying investiture kings appointed bishops and church reformers believed church alone should appoint.
