The Christian Religion or Christianity, is the name given to the followers of Jesus Christ in the country of Palestine during the reign of the Roman Emperor Tiberius. After Jesus' death and resurrection, Christianity spread rapidly, especially in Europe.
In Europe, during the Middle Ages, the only recognized religion was Christianity, in the form of the Catholic Church. From birth to death, whether you were a peasant, a serf, a noble a lord or a King - life was dominated by the church. Various religious institutions became important, rich and powerful.
The Roman Catholic Church was the center of Medieval life. Almost every village had a church, larger towns and cities had cathedrals. Church bells rang out the hours, called people to worship and sounded warnings of impending dangers.
The local church was the center of community activity. Services were held several times per day. Town meetings, plays and concerts we held at the church. Merchants set up business around the church. People looked for the local church for education, to tend to the poor, sick, and needy, and to explain the world events. Prayer and devotion to the church they believed would keep them from disasters and provide salvation for their souls.
