The Christian Church in the Middle Ages played a significant role in society Unfortunately though the church is often regarded as the capital of corruption evil and worldliness Today so many people depict the medieval church as being led by materialistic popes devouring tithes from poverty-stricken peasants having various illegitimate children and granting indulgences for money from wayward believers Yes circumstances like this may have been the case and is often hard to disapprove considering the fact that this notion is often advocated in movies But we must open our mind and look at the situations first before jumping to conclusions As many things define the distinct characteristics of history the Christian church has made a remarkable milestone especially during the Middle Ages Christianitys emergence as an official religion influenced not only the church it enabled people to look beyond the obsession of power and worldly pleasures but to a final and ultimate reward for a life well spent Everybody put their faith in the hope and love of the Christian God It gave the people goals and led them to the right path yet why is it looked down upon so harshly Maybe it was because of the wealth it exemplified or the deterioration of morality in the popes One can heedlessly conclude that the Medieval church was corrupt and unholy but that would not justify its existence Accordingly the church was just trying to adjust itself to an age of chaos and uncertainty The idea that the medieval church was immoral can be rooted on a few methodological errors The arbitrary use of historical evidence and the ignorance of the circumstances are a couple to name Maybe putting together one thousand years of the history of the church with a disregard to any historical development may represent the medieval church as a corrupt institution but still it is not necessary to go as far as to say that the church was corrupt
