In Western Europe during the Middle Ages, Christianity was the main religion. And at that time, all Christians were Catholic (at least in Western Europe). Everyone’s life was dictated by religion: from morning until night, from birth until death. Upper class and lower class alike had to follow the rules of the Church. This lesson takes a look at a few of the many religious jobs during the Middle Ages.
