Medieval Art
  • Feudal" system
  • the king awarded land grants (fiefs) to nobles
    in return for soldiers for the army.
  • peasants, also called (serfs)(villeins). In
    exchange for living and working on his land
    (demesne), the lord offered protection.
  • Most people lived on a manor, which consisted of
    the castle, the church, the village, and the
    surrounding farm land.
  • Many peasant families ate, slept, and spent time
    together in very small quarters, rarely more than
    one or two rooms.
  • no adequate health care system. People believed
    that disease was spread by bad odors and diseases
    of the body resulted from sins of the soul.
  • Most people in the Middles Ages wore wool
    clothing, with undergarments made of linen.
    Brighter colors, better materials, and a longer
    jacket length were signs of wealth.
  • With trade and commerce, feudal life declined. As
    the tradesmen became wealthier, they resented
    having to give their profits to their lords.
