FC: Urban Life versus Rural Life

1: Definitions: Rural: Living in the country side. Urban: Living in a city or a town. Compare: to describe as similar. Contrast: The state of being strictly different from something else | Urban to Rural

2: The manor was at a country estate owned by a lord. The people that lived in the manor were usually the lord, his family, and his servants. Although there were many differences there were also some similarities between rural and urban life. Most people had the same religion, which | was Roman Catholic. During this time many people let the church rule their life. Religion was very important because since life was so hard while they were living they needed a better after life. | Compare

3: There were a lot of things different about each social level but in some cases the king relied on the peasants especially when it came to food. Also there were lots of peasants in both the town and the country side. | Compare

4: In Urban cities children started working at the ages of 7-9. At this age they started an apprenticeship with a Master. Then after years of working for the master they become a journeyman. Finally after another several years they become masters | In urban places, serfs or peasants were hired by lords to work and harvest crop on the lords land. They were assigned strips of land to work on. | Contrast

5: The urban towns were usually surrounded by stone walls. Most of the towns were usually around castles, palaces, or monasteries. Although towns were usually crowded, dirty, and full of rats. The towns provided new opportunities. | Most of the people in the middle ages were Christian but some of them were Jewish. The Christians believed that everyone should be Christian and that it was the best religion | Contrast

6: In the rural country, during the Black Death many peasants revolted and there were major labor shortages. Lots of manors went bankrupt and land was rented or sold to make money. | The Black Death

7: Many serves were freed and the towns were revolting too. There were many people who lost faith in the monarchy (the king). Goods and services were no longer easy to purchase. Many families and communities were torn apart or completely destroyed. Most people became more religious or lost faith because they thought the plague was sent as a punishment from god. There was an economic downturn. | The Black Death
