Product Description
In this a bundle of three separate power point presentations on The Middle Ages: Daily Life of Medieval Nuns, Medieval Nuns and the Anchoress that occurred during the Middle Ages. The combined presentation includes 54 slides that are highly animated and editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

The daily life of Medieval nuns in the Middle Ages were based on the three main vows: The Vows of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience. Medieval nuns chose to renounce all worldly life and goods and spend their lives working under the strict routine and discipline of life in a Medieval Convent or Nunnery.

The Daily life of a Medieval nun during the Middle Ages centered around the hours. The Book of Hours was the main prayer book and was divided into 8 sections, or hours, that were meant to be read at specific times of the day in the convent. Each section contained prayers, psalms, hymns, and other readings intended to help the nuns secure salvation for herself. Each day was divided into these 8 sacred offices, beginning and ending with prayer services in the convent church.

Many convents and nunneries only accepted candidates who were from wealthy backgrounds. The probationary period usually lasted 1 month, the novitiate 1 year. Having once joined she remained a nun for the rest of her life.

An Anchoress was a deeply religious woman who chose to live a solitary life in confined quarters called an “anchorage” or and “anchorhold,” which usually consisted of a single small cell. The anchorage's were similar to hermits but rather than living alone in forests or caves the anchoress lived within populated communities. The anchorhold was often attached to the wall of a church. This religious Medieval life style was also pursued by men, who were called “anchorites.”
