All About the Middle Ages – An Era When the Gospel Governed the Nations

As modern society sinks further into depravity and chaos, we turn to the Medieval Christendom to learn what a truly Christian society is. While the Middle Ages had its faults, like every human epoch, Pope Leo XIII states in his encyclical Immortale Dei, that the Middle Ages was an era in which the philosophy of the Gospel governed the states:

“There was a time when the philosophy of the Gospel governed the states. In that epoch, the influence of Christian wisdom and its divine virtue permeated the laws, institutions, and customs of the peoples, all categories and all relations of civil society. Then the religion instituted by Jesus Christ, solidly established in the degree of dignity due to it, flourished everywhere thanks to the favor of princes and the legitimate protection of magistrates. Then the Priesthood and the Empire were united in a happy concord and by the friendly interchange of good offices. So organized, civil society gave fruits superior to all expectations, whose memory subsists and will subsist, registered as it is in innumerable documents that no artifice of the adversaries can destroy or obscure.”
