Fuedilism Project By: Reese Carpenter

Define Fuedilism: the dominant social system in medieval Europe, in which the nobility held lands from the Crown in exchange for military service, and vassals were in turn tenants of the nobles, while the peasants (villeins or serfs) were obliged to live on their lord's land and give him homage, labor, and a share of the produce, notionally in exchange for military protection.

Define Manor: (in England) a landed estate or territorial unit, originally of the nature of a feudal lordship, consisting of a lord's demesne and of lands within which he has the right to exercise certain privileges, exact certain fees, etc.

List the people that lived on the manor. King, Noblemen, Bishops, Knights, Nuns, Monks, Servants, Peasants, Soilders, and Serfs.

Explain: how the society groups are interdependent? Each society group is differnt because a lot of them have a lot of people or they have just a little people. Some of them would fight, pray, and would work. Many of the people worked very hard each and everyday.

Explain: How does the feudal system affect politics? It affects others in many ways, it can be in a hurtful way or even in a good way. The hurtful way will affect the poor people for an example the Serfs. The good way will affect the rich people for an example the King.

Explain: How does the feudal system affect social structure? It affects the social structure in many ways. One way is that if the feudal system stops supporting the social structure, then it will start to go down hill. There are many social structures that you can be born into.

Explain: How does the feudal system affect the economy? It affects it in many ways. One of the most important way is that the feudal system was really big in the Middle Ages. So, if the feudal system fell apart then the whole economy would fall apart. Once there is no economy then there is nothing anyone can help you with.
