In medieval times, religion controlled daily life.
All the important events of life took place in the medieval church -
baptism, confirmation, marriage, and burial.
Relics: To make each cathedral and each little church in the
land unique, each had its own holy relic. A holy relic is something that
belonged to or was touched by Jesus or a saint. A treasured relic might
be bone fragment or a tiny piece of the cross.
Tales of miracles that supposedly happened because
of the presence of a holy relic were very popular. Since there were a
great many parish churches and cathedrals, some of the relics may not
have been real, but all relics had a story, and all were treasured.
