Miss Eileen Power: Europe throughout the Ages - The Middle Ages

on 5XX Daventry

View in Radio Times

Last week Miss Power sketched out the plan of Christendom in the Dark Ages, showing how, amongst the chaos that succeeded the Roman Empire, three forces kept civilization together - the Catholic Church, the Frankish kingdom, which became the Holy Roman Empire, and the feudal system. This evening she proceeds to the Middle Ages, when the chief influences at work were the Church and chivalry. In this talk she will deal with them both, their great personalities and great achievements -
Pope Innocent III, St. Francis, and Aquinas, and the great cathedrals, the feudal castles and the romances of chivalry - and with their union in that epic of the Middle Ages, the Crusades.
