  • The legal and social system that existed in medieval Europe after the reign of Charlemagne.

  • Under this System a noble (Lord) granted land (Fief) to a lesser noble (Vassal).

  • In exchange for the fief a vassal promised loyalty, and military service to the lord.

The manor system

The Manor System

  • Manorialism: the economic system in much of Europe during the middle ages.

  • People who lived on manors needed to be self-sufficient.

  • A lord and several peasant families shared the land of the manor.

  • Lord kept about 1/3 of the lands for himself (called the domain)

Peasant life

Peasant Life

  • Peasant life was difficult.

  • Peasants (or serfs) could not leave the land without the lord’s permission.

  • Paid about 70% of their income/goods to their Lord.

  • Meal consisted mainly of bread, lentils, some vegetables, and ale.

  • Life expectance was short.

  • Lived, worked, and died all in the village they were born.

Nobles lifestyles

Nobles’ Lifestyles

  • Did not live in luxury.

  • Castle had thick walls and small windows; rooms were dark and chilly.

  • Lords spent the day looking after their land and administering justice among his vassals and serfs.

What is a knight

What is a Knight?

  • Almost all nobles were knights

  • Training began at age 7, as a page, under the guidance of the lady of the manor

  • Became squires at age 15 and were trained by other knights in the code of chivalry and the use of weapons.

  • When ready the squires would accompany the knights into battle. Those deemed worthy were “dubbed” knights.



  • Code of conduct that dictated knights’ behavior towards others.

  • Knights were expected to be courageous, fight fairly, be loyal, keep their word, treat conquered foes gallantly, and be courteous to women and the less powerful.

  • Popes held some political power, not just spiritual power over European monarchs.

  • Church had its own code of law, called cannon law, and its own courts.

  • The clergy was involved with social work and took care of the poor and needy, and established hospitals.

Problems of the church

Problems of the Church

  • The church’s great wealth and influence led to many problems.

  • Interdict: Churches in an entire region would be closed and no sacraments or ordinances performed.

  • People could buy high positions within the church hierarchy from a Lord (Simony).

  • In the 1200’s the church attempted to reform itself by seeking out Heretics (people who do not believe or live the doctrines of their faith).

  • The search for heretics is known as the Inquisition.
