Fuedal System

The center of life in medieval times was the manor. The manner was owned by a noble, and a village would develop around the manor. The village was made up of a priest, peasants, blacksmiths etc;. All necessities the lord needed were within his manor. Under the feudal system land was granted to nobles. Nobles needed protection so they offered food and lodging to knights in exchange for protection. Nobles also needed peasants to work the land. They would offer a home, and a portion of the food they produce in exchange for farming the land. Feudalism was focused around mutual exchange, and social hierarchy.

The Roman Catholic Church

The church was very closely related to state. The church reinforced the ideas of the state, with the exceptions. The pope was the head of the church, and in charge of instilling good morals and faith. Everyone devoted their life to support, and sustain the church. It was not only a religion to abide by, but a lifestyle. The peasants paid 10% of taxes to the church.
