For review, briefly describe what happened to western Europe at the end of the Roman Empire. What do you think a dark age is?

16 The Middle Ages Defined After the fall of Rome, Western Europe entered a period known as the Middle Ages, also known as The Medieval Period, which lasted from A.D. The Middle Ages or Medieval Period B.C 476 A.D The Roman Empire The Renaissance (Rebirth) Begins around 1400

17 The Middle Ages Defined In general, the Middle Ages are defined by a lack of central government, decline of trade, population shift to rural areas, decrease in learning, and a rise in the power of The Roman Catholic Church.

18 The Rise of Feudalism Political and Social Organization of Medieval Europe The Problem: You are one of many kings ruling various kingdoms in Western Europe during the Middle Ages. You are also the proud owner of large landholdings in your area. However, you are struggling to control the nobles in your kingdom who are fighting each other to expand their landholdings and increase their power (in turn, threatening yours). In addition, you are concerned about increasing barbarian attacks from the east. What can you do to create structure in your kingdom and ensure order? Your Solution:

19 The Rise of Feudalism Political and Social Organization of Medieval Europe Oath of loyalty/military support Loyalty/milit ary King Vassal (Lord) Knights Grant Fief (land) Shelter/food Labor, rent Serfs and Peasants (90% of population) Shelter/foo d And protection

20 The Rise of Feudalism Political and Social Organization of Medieval Europe Causes of Feudalism: After the fall of Rome, Western Europe was a scary place! With no strong, central government to raise a large army, there was no protection from invaders. The Feudal system emerged as a means to create social/political order and stability in society was well as to provide a system of protection The Role of Serfs: They were bound to the land. In other words, slaves. No social mobility! Your place in this feudal pyramid was determined by birth!

21 The Manor System The Medieval Economic System Sometimes the manor system is referred to as manorialism. The manor was completely self sufficient meaning that everything that was needed was on the manor. Very little reason to leave or travel

22 The Manor System The Medieval Economic System The self sufficient manor contributed to the decline of learning. No new ideas were exchanged. Technology was slow to progress. Little use of money. Wealth based on land.

23 Name: Aim: How did the Roman Catholic in the Middle Ages help and control Western Europe? Do Now: read the quote and answer the question Just as the moon gets her light from the sun, and is inferior to the sun, so the king get his power from the papal (pope s) authority. - Pope Innocent III (1198 C.E.) 1. According to the quote, why does a king need the pope? I. Importance of the Catholic Church in Western Europe During the Middle Ages A. Most of Western Europe was Catholic during Middle Ages B. People believed that the Catholic Church determined who went to heaven and who went to hell C. Seven Sacraments: seven important ceremonies that determine who can get into heaven. 1.Examples: Baptism, Communion, Confirmation, Confession 2. Without a priest, the sacraments can not be performed D. those who broke church law were punished: 1) excommunication- being cut off from the Church/sacraments II. Culture of the Roman Catholic Church in the Middle Ages: A. Art & Architecture- large churches demonstrated the power of the Church 1. Gothic: a style of architecture where large churches would be built (see below) 2. stained glass windows told stories from Bible- to the illiterate III. Roman Catholic Church in Conflict with Royal Power (The Kings) A. Lay Investiture: Kings appointed church officials that resided in their territories. Question: Why would a king want to appoint the church officials that reside in his territories? B. Pope bans Lay Investiture. C. King orders pope to resign Question: What can the Pope do to the King? D. Pope excommunicates Emperor Question: Why will the king s kingdom be in danger if the king is excommunicated? F. Concordat of Worms (concordat = agreement; Worms = city in Germany) 1. Pope appoints church officials How does the Gothic style of architecture displayed in this church demonstrate the power of the Catholic Church in the Middle Ages?
