The Feudal System
The Manorial System
The Catholic Church
Large landowners needed protection over their property since there was no strong central government to do so. These landowners, or lords, gave land to individuals called vassals in exchange for the pledge to defend the lord.
The relationship between the lord and the peasants who worked for them is called the Manorial system. Lords lived in large manors or castles that were designed to give people protection. Peasants, or serfs, worked in the lord's fields and took care of his animals. Serfs had little to no rights and could do little without permission from the lords
The church took place for the lack of government in the Middle Ages. It gained a lot of power. Church leaders established their own court. Anyone who acted against the church would be tried for heresy and be punished with excommunication. Monks were responsible for the education of others and the church played a large role in medieval art and architecture.
