Many commonly accepted facts relating to present day life originated in Middle Age England. For example, the existence of unions goes back to the the guilds prevalent to those times, as does the practice of providing an estimate of cost for a construction project. Cost awareness has been issue number one forever. The 12 member jury goes back to a "jury" of 12 "reasonable" citizens which was used to decide disputes. Innumerable bases of current law and governance were rooted in practices from that time. Why are barbers today licensed by states? They can do minor "surgical" procedures, such as lancing boils (disgusting but sometimes necessary). Why is that? They were in the forefront of medical advances during those times. From 700 years ago that status has endured to this day! yall no what i am tired of giving yall information please stop being mean to hey what you Dion hey what yah Dion just wqanted Ron kno w so tel;l emw whata re u Dion jusrt phey wha\hey what hey what u diion justywghdbwschbcgjsdbcghd\

The beliefs of medieval women were pretty much the same as those of medieval men. Most were Christian, though there were pagans in the North and Northeast, there were Muslims in Spain, and there were a number of Jews throughout Europe.

Some people where superstitious, and some were not, and this was true for both men and women. I am sure there were both men and women involved in witchcraft. There were also both men and women who believed in science.

Eleanor of Aquitaine went on crusade with a company of 300 women.

Queen Hedwig of Poland was crowned as a king because she wanted everyone to understand that she was the monarch, even if she was a woman.

Empress Irene was ruling the Byzantine Empire when Charlemagne was crowned Emperor of the West.

Queen Margaret I of Denmark ruled Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Iceland for over twenty years.

Queen Margaret I had no legal right to reign, but she was asked to because the nobility respected her so much.

When an army came to remove Queen Margaret I, she completely destroyed it.

Queen Ethelfleda of Mercia kicked the Vikings around and drove them out of parts of England.

St. Hildegard of Bingen composed a play set to music, writing the music down so we can still play and sing it.

St. Hildegard of Bingen also had visions, many of which were written down.

St. Joan of Arc, a farm girl, became the leader of the French armies when she was seventeen. At that point, the French were close to losing the Hundred years War, but by the time she was captured and executed at age nineteen, she had put the English army on the defensive and the French were winning.

Marie de France was a great poet, whose life is completely unknown to us.

Anna Comnena wrote a diary, which is invaluable to historians because of its detailed descriptions of the Byzantine court of her day.

With the single exception of Joan of Arc, all of these women were literate.

Because medieval people were religious, they believed that cleanliness was next to godliness, or the condition of the body was a reflection of the condition of the soul. The result was that medieval women tended to be very clean. Women sometimes ate apart from men so the men would not see them with greasy fingers.
