It was extremely hard for someone to change their social standings. The most common of those switches were knights to nobles, but even that was rare(OI). The church was very important in these feudal societies. People from the MIddle Ages lived by the word of God. Most of the time, the church had even more political power than the government.
This resulted into their rights and whom they worked for. As a peasant, you were almost considered a slave because you were told what to do by higher classes but, the difference was peasants could not be sold throughout different manors by lords (How would you survive in the middle ages 6). Peasants also contributed by doing hard labor for people of the upper classes. Since the manor was self sufficient, noblemen had all the peasants do the work to provide for the entire county. The only true benefit they got from the manor was protection of the knights.
Serfs lived in a simple wattle and daub hut with thatched roofs, they had very simple one – room houses, often sharing with their livestock. The quotes below provide a further explanation of Feudalism. (Source two: Froissart J: 1395) states “Bound by law and custom to plough the fields of their master”. This source is stating that the peasants had no choice but to do the work such as plough the fields of their masters. Source two corroborates with (Source six: Ross D:20/6/15) as they both explain how the peasants had to work for their Lords, stating “Although technically not a slave, a serf was bound to a Lord for life, he could not own property and needed the Lord’s permission to marry”.
After Arnaud asked for the remainder of Martin’s inheritance, Pierre seemed to have been highly offended which resulted in him setting out to prove that Arnaud was not Martin. Pierre’s hatred turned half the town against Martin. It may have even landed Arnaud in jail before Pierre had any real proof of Arnaud’s identity. In 1559, Arnaud was imprisoned after being accused of burning down the farm of Jean d’Escornebeuf. According to Davis, “in the course of [Jean’s] complaint – evidently tipped off by Pierre Guerre – he told the judge that the prisoner ‘had usurped the marriage bed of another man’” (Davis, p. 57).
- Agriculture has impacted my life in a variety of ways. I grew up on a small acreage in Manchester, Iowa. I also spent a lot of time at my grandparent’s farm in Dubuque, Iowa. I was also involved in 4-h which I consider as one of the most memorable things I have done in my life because of meeting new people and showing livestock as a hobby. Not only does personal experience impact me, but also the fact that agriculture is so important today with feeding people and preventing world hunger.
At the age of 16 or 17, Zapata had to care for his family following his father's death. Emiliano was entrepreneurial, buying a team of mules to haul maize from farms to town, as well as bricks to the Hacienda of Chinameca; he was also a successful farmer, growing watermelons as a cash crop. He was a skilled horseman and competed in rodeos and races, as well as bullfighting from horseback.

This labor system reducued their risk when cotton prices were low and encouraged workers to increase production without costly supervision (Of the people, 467). Which ultimately created another advantage for the workers because they were now being rewarded with a share of the land they worked so hard to harvest within a year 's time. Overall I greatly believe that sharecropping was an acceptable way to help achieve economic freedom, especially for the blacks. They no longer had to do indescribable work that in the end did not benefit them, only the owners of the land that they occupied. They were able to acquire a contract that not only benefited them, with the chance to actually have a sense of "owning" land showing independence, but also benefiting the land-owners with them still earning a profit from the portions of land they rented out to the free

For examples, one of the biggest changes was religion. Back then, there were many disputes about the Catholic teachings. The two prominent religious figures, who completely impacted the way people view religion, were a German monk named Martin Luther, and a Frenchman named John Calvin. Their understandings of true faith and predestination caused many people to find flaws in the catholic doctrines, which later formed a group called the protestants. As conflicts between the catholics and the protestants became more violent, it affected the English economy.
