Medieval Europe Final Project
By: Jessica Johnson
How did the Roman Catholic Church unify Europe, politically and socially, after the fall of Rome?
How did the following events, both individually and collectively, contribute to the end of the Medieval Era in Europe?
The Plague- The plague caused the death of thousands of people and set religions against each other
The Great Schism- This set the two main churches against each other and eventually led to excommunication. This did not help the unity and helped split the people.
The Hundred Years War- This also began to split the people apart, choosing sides and fighting. The constant fighting and wars became natural to the people of the Roman Empire and it helped them fall.
