Art in the Medieval Times• Stained-Glass: reached it height in ancient rome between 1150 and 1500. These pieces of art were built for the great cathedrals in rome in ancient times.
Stained GlassTheophilus is said to bethe creator of stainedglass and most of thestained glass stillstanding in most of thegreat churches andtheaters and stuff stillstanding today. Toassemble the window,pieces of colored andpainted glass are laid outon the design board,with the edges of eachpiece fitted into H-shaped strips of lead.
Stained Glass inCathedralsThis incomplete but splendidexample of St. George fightingthe Dragon fills a large area ofthe south wall at Broughton.The roof was restored andmade lower at some time afterit was painted in the later 15thcentury and the head andshoulders of George himselfhave gone as a result.Medieval artists invariablypainted horses well, but herethe Dragon too is very stylishlyrendered indeed as St. Georgethrusts his spear into its mouth.The saint bears his Red Crosson his shield; his elaboratearmor helps to date thepainting.
Stained Glass inCathedralsPictured at the here is St.Bartholomew. This is a raresighting of the saint, who is notcommon anywhere. There is a13th century painting of him in awindow splay, much mutilated, atTidmarsh in Berkshire, againpaired as here with St. John theEvangelist, and one in a splaybeside the Doom at Chalgrove inOxfordshire, where, in a paintingcontemporary with this one, he ispaired with St. Laurence. AtMaresfield in Sussex, a churchdedicated to Bartholomew, a12th century painting, thought tobe of his Martyrdom, is recorded,but that church was radicallyrestored in 1878/9 and itspaintings lost.
King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table• The historical accuracy of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table has holes in it. Back when Arthur lived battling was a way of gaining fame. There is no real evidence that can prove what really happened in King Arthur’s history. When families pass stories down from generation to generation they get the truth stretched and people exaggerate. People make up legends all the time to get fame. Arthur is just a legend with no evidence behind his stories. His stories are there to give a legendary figure that provides strength, bravery, and leadership. He fought side by side his knights when they went to war with barbarians and Rome.
King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table• . His nephew Sir Gawain was one of his personal knights that fought side by side him. Sir Gawain was called the Green Knight. Sir Gawain’s closest friend Sir Lancelot accidentally killed Sir Gawain’s brothers and caused the knights to fight among each other. Before his death, sir Gawain repented of his bitterness towards Sir Lancelot and forgave him.

Feudalism• In feudalism the King granted land to his closest friends, and he gave them many gifts.• The lowest people on the totem pole were the pheasants and they did whatever the king needed and in return they received protection from the King.
Feudalism• The women in the society were confined to the house, and they handled the duties of cleaning, cooking, and taking care of their young. Some became nuns, and some were known for using witchcraft. Some women were field hands, some wrote and played music, some women even fought in battle!
