The Middle Ages V.S. The Renaissance
People during the middle ages were all strictly Roman Catholic. Most of their art was either religious or morbid because of the Bubonic Plague. Most people spoke Latin but could not read or write. They depended on the pope to translate and read the bible to them in Latin because it was vernacular .
The government in the middle ages was feudalism, a system where everyone is born into an unchangeable level in the pyramid. The surfs make food for everyone else, and in return the vassals/knights give them protection.
In the middle ages they used the manorial system to wire their economy. Like most places during ancient times, they earned a lot of their money by trading goods.
