In this a bundle of two separate power point presentations on The Middle Ages: Monasticism and The Middle Ages: Life in a Medieval Monastery that occurred during the Middle Ages. The combined presentation includes 37 slides that are highly animated and editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
The monastic spirit in Christianity owed much to the example of its founder, who was himself unmarried, poor, and without a place "where to lay his head.“ Some of Christ's teachings, taken literally, also helped to exalt the worth of the monastic life.
The Medieval monastery was established during the Middle Ages and served as the primary residence of the Monks. A Medieval monastery was a farm, an inn, a hospital, a school and a library. The uses of the monastery included the following: received pilgrims and travelers, at a period when western Europe was almost destitute of inns, performed many works of charity, feeding the hungry, healing the sick who were brought to their doors, and distributing their medicines, provided education for boys who wished to become priests and those who intended to lead active lives in the world, copied the manuscripts of classical authors preserving valuable books that would otherwise have been lost, and kept records of the most striking events of their time and acted as chroniclers of the medieval history of the Middle Ages.
