This is a 12 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on The High Middle Ages. All the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
The High Medieval Era is the period of time 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.
The presentation covers the following:
Medievalism at its Peak
The Feudal System
The Crusades (2)
