Medieval Lives in the Middle Ages as dominated by the Catholic Religion
The Catholic Church was the only church in Europe during the Middle Ages. It had its own laws and large coffers. Church leaders such as bishops played major roles in the government. Bishops, who were often wealthy, ruled over groups of parishes called "diocese". As the population of Europe expanded in the 20th century, the churches that had been built in the Roman style became too small. Some of the grand cathedrals, strained to their structural limits by their creators drive to build higher and larger, collapsed within a century or less of their construction.
