The start of the Decline

The decline of the medieval church started in the 14th and 15th century. The spirit towards the church led to the church's decline.

After pressures from outside of the church, spirits started to grow as did attitudes. The spirit towards the church cause the church's attitude to improve, therefore the church adapted to the new environment around them in a positive way.
