The Middle Ages: The monasteries

 

In the Middle Ages there was much fighting and cruelty, people were very religious.

 

The Bishops and abbots were as powerful as the barons.

 

They owned numerous manors, because when rich men died, they left money and land to the monasteries, asking the monks to pray for their souls.
