Medieval Lives: Birth, Marriage, Death

In MEDIEVAL LIVES: BIRTH, MARRIAGE, DEATH, historian, author and television presenter Helen Castor (She-Wolves: England's Early Queens) explores how the people of the Middle Ages handled the most fundamental moments of transition in life. In doing so, she reveals the beliefs and thought process of those living in the medieval world. For the people of this time, the teachings of the Catholic Church shaped views and attitudes across the whole of Western Europe. But at the end of that era, the Church would find itself in the grip of momentous change and the ways of birth, marriage and death would never be quite the same again.

There are no upcoming episodes of Medieval Lives: Birth, Marriage, Death.
