Transcript

  • 1. Warm-Up B2 Answer the 2 questions in the first concept column - Feudalism.
  • 2. Economics Manorialism What is the manor system? • An economic system of obligations (promises) that govern the relationships between lords and peasants (serfs) in medieval Europe. • The manor system is about who works the land, and how the fruit of that labor is divided up.
  • 3. Economics A manor on the fief What is a fief? What is a manor? • When a lord gave something to a vassal it was often called a fief. A fief was usually a piece of land that the vassal would become responsible for. • This fief would have a manor on it. A manor is a self-sustaining community.
  • 4. Economics Trade What was feudalism and manorialism a response to? What was trade like during the early part of Medieval Europe. • Remember, feudalism was a political solution to the dangerous conditions in Western Europe. • Manorialism was the economic response to that danger. • Trade was far to dangerous; communities could not trust that trade would ever make it to them. As a result, communities had to produce everything they needed. A manor served this function.
  • 5. Economics Serfs What did a serf receive from the lord? What was the serf required to do with some of the produce from their lands? • Serfs were given small parcels of land to grow crops for their family and to sell – but the land still belonged to the lord, so they could not sell it. • Some of this produce also had to be paid to the lord of the land as taxes. Also, if a serf wanted to use any of the lords resources (like a mill for grinding grain) then they would pay a fee with some of their produce.
  • 6. Economics Produce Before a serf could work their own land, what did the serf have to do? What would a serf have to do if they wanted to leave the manor? • Before a serf was able to work in their fields, they were required to work the fields that belonged only to the lord. • Everything that grows on the lord’s fields goes to the lord. The serf is not allowed to keep anything they grow on that land. • A serf was tied to the land. Even though a serf was considered a free person, they needed to receive the lords permission to leave the manor.
  • 7. Economics The Lords What did the lord do on the manor? What did many lords and vassals train to be? • Serfs did most of the work on the manor, which freed up much of the lord’s time. • The lord spent most of their time protecting the land and providing justice. • Lords and vassals were also free to train and become professional warriors called knights.
  • 8. I, John of Toul, make known that I am the liege man of the [count and countess of Champagne].... I will aid the count of Champagne in my own person, and will send to the count and countess of Champagne the knights whose service l owe to them for the fief which I hold of them....")
