The Papal Monarchy

Colin Morris

Oxford University Press

There was a new element of humanism in twelfth‐century thinking, and with this came a concern for the ordering of an increasingly technical society. The older idea of ‘orders’ in society was increasingly superseded by the idea of ‘estates’. There was a massive commitment to the relief of the poor, and a new theology of marriage was elaborated. Commercial ethics were an important issue, especially the question of usury, and so was the elaboration of an ideal of knighthood.

Keywords:   charity, chivalry, estates, hospitals, marriage, orders, poverty, usury
