This is a 24 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on The Middle Ages: The Role of the Church in the High Middle Ages. All the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
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.
The Medieval Church had become very powerful!
The presentation covers the following:
