More Info

In this series Ruth Goodman, Peter Ginn and new presenter Tom Pinfold take the farm one stage further attempting to recreate, not just the historical context, but the spiritual context in which these abbeys functioned, in a society in which the Christian faith was at the heart of everything.

 

They take on the role of the lay-folk who did the bulk of the farming and craftwork within monastic lands, as well as exploring the monastery’s primary function – to pray and care for the spiritual welfare of all Christians, both living and dead.

 

The biggest abbeys teemed with a huge workforce who often outnumbered the monks three to one. Every single craft of the Middle Ages was represented in the abbeys; from wine-making and cloth production to printing and bell casting. They were also places of technological innovation and improvement: farmers on monastic lands pioneered many crucial developments, from the waterwheel to sheep breeding.
