For the people of the Middle Ages, life was often
turbulent and trying. Living amidst a politically aggressive
era, which was brewing with poverty and plagues, often left
people in fear and despair. The people of the Middle Ages began
to look to the heavens for salvation. Religion offered security
and hope in a seemingly hopeless time, and so it soon became the
backbone of medieval communities and was injected into
philosophy, literature, and architechtcure. Thomas Aquinas’
(1225-1274) position in philosophy was a rethinking of Aristotle
in light of Christian teaching. According to the Summas
