Life In Medieval Times
Hi, i'm Shenzu Jetchi, a monk at this monastery. Before I get back to copying hundreds of pages in a book, I'll tell you how the life was like during the Middle Ages in Europe.
Kings And Queens
William Patrick, I will grant you a large land!
Yes, Your majesty. in return, I will provide loyalty and an army for you!
Almost done with this book, I think I got what the book is for. i wonder why i have to copy books everyday?

Nobles: Barnos, Counts, Dukes, & Earls
Welcome to my rich and wonderful monor! My duties are to protect my people, provide work/land, and also provide supplies and military services foe the king. Yes, i have a cool job!
Man, i'm so rich!
The popes would influence their discussion by threatening to excommunicate them.
Hi, welcome to my fief! My job is to protect the peasants from invaders as well as collecting taxes from them
The impact is that monks have to copy every page of the books by hand, and while they are doing that they have to preserve that knowledge.
Peasants: Serfs and Freeman
Hi, were serfs, we live in a very small house with our kids and some farm animals, we have to work on our fields everyday for hours. Freedom is not in our dictionary.
If only i didn't get married at 13.
A noble could grant a land for a knight in exchange for loyalty and military services!
Since i'm a knight, my duty is to fight for my ruler. Yes, I have a dangerous job but i can keep the values taken from conquered people and use it to increase my wealth.
In addition to working hours and hours, since they are paying taxes, and rent, they also have to pay the lord for grain mill, and bread ovens.
