Europe in the Middle AgesMonks and Heretics (eps. 2)

As centres of missionary activity and science, monasteries made an important contribution to pro­gress. Here, not only theology was taught and studied, but medicine, mathematics, astronomy, law and philosophy as well.

However, the monasteries were not only places of devout worship and chastity – intrigues, power struggles and love affairs were not unknown to them either.
