I'm talking about this is a historical perspective here. In the Middle Ages, there was a hierarchy and such. You get it. Serfs, Knights, Barons, Church, and then the Crown. In the Renaissance, after the Middle Ages, many people discovered that the Church was just a scam. They usurped wealth and power, and did a bad job at helping the public.
The plague killed more than half of Europe. The pilgrims tried to go to shrines to pray, but died anyways. The Church lost power, but Christianity still didn't die out completely. Why did people keep believing?
Do NOT derail the point of this thread by giving an answer involving a higher power intervening somehow.
And now for something completely different.
