What did Medieval People Really Wear?

via What did Medieval People Really Wear?

This reblog showed the Early to Mid-Middle Ages vastly different we are conditioned to believe it was. For example, nudity was quite common during the Early to Mid-Middle Ages. Public bathhouses were also very common Middle Ages. I must say that it was the Inquisition which begin to outlaw many of these practices before the start of Protestant Reformation. Let’s just say if you were of nobility the Inquisition allowed you more leeway than if you were of peasantry.

Yes, the Protestant Reformation did bring about stricter conduct codes for every one not just the serf. It did away with what was labeled frivolous, empty romantic writings. Arguing it doesn’t exist and led to the idea of Don Quixote? Where the plot revolves around the adventures of a nobleman from La Mancha named Alonso Quixano, who reads so many chivalric romances that he loses his mind and decides to become a knight-errant (caballero andante) to revive chivalry and serve his nation, under the name Don Quixote de la Mancha.

She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.
