The High Medieval Era is the period that seems to typify the Middle Ages best. Usually beginning with the 11th century, to 1300. This period saw such significant events as Norman conquests in Britain and Sicily, the earlier Crusades, the Investiture Controversy, and the signing of the Magna Carta.

The church became the universal and unifying institution. Strong popes, notably Gregory VII, worked for a reinvigorated Europe guided by a centralized church. By the end of the 11th century, nearly every corner of Europe had become Christianized (with the notable exception of much of Spain), and the Papacy, long established as a political force, was in constant struggle with some secular governments and alliance with others.

Power point presentation #1 is entitled, The High Middle Ages and contains 12 slides and covers the following:

Medievalism at its Peak
Norman Conquests
The Feudal System
The Crusades (2)
Investiture Controversy
Magna Carta
End of Presentation

The first of the Crusades began in 1095, when armies of Christians from Western Europe responded to Pope Urban II’s plea to go to war against Muslim forces in the Holy Land. Considered at the time to be divinely sanctioned, these campaigns, involving often ruthless battles. At their core was a desire for access to shrines associated with the life and ministry of Jesus, above all the Holy Sepulcher, the church in Jerusalem said to contain the tomb of Chris.

Absolution from sin and eternal glory were promised to the Crusaders, who also hoped to gain land and wealth in the East. Pope Urban’s plea met with a tremendous response, both among lower levels of the military as well as ordinary citizens; it was determined that those who joined the armed pilgrimage would wear a cross as a symbol of the Church.

The crusades lasted for 200 years until support for such efforts disappeared in the 16th century, with the rise of the Reformation and the corresponding decline of papal authority.
