Title: MEDIEVAL CHURCH: A BRIEF HISTORY, THE
International, multinational and yet intimately local, the Church was the central institution of the European Middle Ages. No aspect of the medieval worlds was untouched by its influence. It shaped the daily round of peasant and magnate alike, from cradle to grave. It was a key actor in the high politics of kings and emperors. It ordered the relations of man and woman, the individual and the group, the ruler and the ruled. It was a driving force behind many of the economic and administrative advances of the age. It was the source and stimulus of western learning; and the immortal souls of everyone, from the lowest to the highest, were in its care.
