The Role Of Religion

Sarah Kauf~RebeccaBarkan

religion in daily lives
Religion In Daily Lives
  • In the 1300s and 1400s the old religious and social certainties were not the biggest priority in people, because of conflict between Parliament and church, and the Black Death (plague)(Kemmer 2).
  • The Black Death was a plague that swept across Western Europe from 1348~1349. Historians believe that between 25%-50% of the entire population of Western Europe died(Keri 1).
  • This made the European people of the century repent to their god(s) (Keri 1).
religion in the late 1300s
Religion in the late 1300s
  • Church officials were corrupt and started to only care about wealth and power. In other words, they were “self serving” (Kemmer 3).
  • This was seen as ungodly, thus they lost respect as they no longer bothered to “keep up the appearance” of widely known “holy orders”, and obeying them(Kemmer 3).
  • Englishmen and women became irritated because the papal (roman-catholic church) court favored their enemies from France, or at least it seemed that way (Muhlberger 2).
reform relationships
Reform/Relationships
  • The church reform was unsuccessful because of the Peasants’ Revolt(they uniquely captured the Tower of London; the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Kings Treasurer were killed)(Kemmer 4).
  • The church reform frightened a lot of citizens, especially those with little property, and made them think of reform with political destabilization and anarchy(Peasants 2).
  • “Law, literature and religion were all developing domains for the spread of literacy in the late medieval period.” (Kemmer 4).
government society
Government/Society
  • As in theory, to an extent the church copied the government of the Roman Empire(Muhlberger2).
  • Papal missionaries converted Englishmen and women to Christianity, as well as spreading their religion to many surrounding countries beyond the Roman Empire’s previous border(Muhlberger 2).
  • The conversion to Christianity strengthened beliefs by religious leaders from the west (like the Pope) that they acquired a legitimate authority, which was separate from politics (Muhlberger 2).
  • Government consisted of three estates: church, nobles, and urban leaders (Muhlberger 2).
