If any one of the students in arts or theology dies, half of the masters of arts are to go the funeral, and the other half to the next funeral. They are not to withdraw until the burial is completed, unless they have some good reason. If any master of arts or theology dies, all the masters are to be present at the vigils, each one is to read the psalter or have it read. Each one is to remain in the church, where the vigils are celebrated, until midnight or later, unless prevented by some good reason. On the day when the master is buried, no one is to lecture or dispute.

Remember you are NEVER alone. You shall have difficult days, we all do. You might have days that you feel like giving up, I know I have. And that’s okay! If you need to take it one day, one hour, or heck even one minute at a time – do so.
Sub-Tenant Free tenant holding land of intermediate lord than directly of king rather. Generally a subdivision of a diocese; administered by a resident priest who might have other clergy as his assistants; it was the basic unit of ordinary church life in western Europe. 1) Applied to the way in which undying institutions, especially those connected with the church, held real property, and thereby could not be liable for the exactions which would be due to a lord at the death of an individual. 2) Literally “dead hand”, applied to property held by ecclesiastical corporations. 3) Literally “dead hand”, a term which was applied to land granted in perpetuity to the church; also the title of the English statute of 1279 which barred all such grants.
I spent many a days too nauseated to make it through a lesson or too lightheaded to move around the room. Days were spent with tears flooding in my eyes as I tried to catch a breath or moment of rest as they rushed through their lunch, while attempting to prevent my students also, colleagues, administration, and parents from seeing the intense pain or sickness that I was dealing with on a daily basis. Days were spent struggling to maintain my composure until a substitute could be found and able to come in to relieve/replace me for the day. Plans were changed and adapted at the last minute, for students and me, as unexpected sick calls mounted in the mornings due to extreme symptoms or impromptu feeding tube problems requiring medical attention. I ended 2018 with my kids, husband, and dad at a football game.

Feudalism 1) The system of governing whereby semiautonomous landed nobility have certain well defined responsibilities to the king, in return for the use of grants of land (fiefs) exploited with the labor of a semi-free peasantry (serfs).
3) Land devoted to the lord’s profit, whether a manor, or a portion of land within a manor, worked by peasants as part of their obligations. 4) Lands and rights retained for direct exploitation by lord or king rather than being granted out to others. 5) That land retained in the landlord’s hand and cultivated by himself or leased out, as opposed to tenant land held by hereditary peasant tenants.
From this small inception of my school, my fame in the art of dialectics began to spread abroad, so that little by little the renown, not of those who had been my fellow students alone, but of our very teacher himself, grew dim and was like to die out altogether. Thus it came about that, still more confident in myself, I moved my school as as I well might to the castle of Corbeil soon, which is hard by the populous city of Paris, for there I knew there would be given more frequent chance for my assaults in our battle of disputation.
You might even discover that sharing your experiences helps you feel better mentally and emotionally. To me it helps bring the feeling of purpose and meaning to my life. 1) The wealthiest class of peasant.
5) English term for serf. 6) In England, the holder of a villein tenement for which he owes agricultural services to his lord usually. The villein’s rights in his tenement are customary and not enforeceable against his lord by medieval common law. Personally free against all men but his lord, the villein does not fully enjoy the rights of a free man nevertheless. He is a tenant at the will of the lord; he cannont serve on a jury dealing with the rights of a free man; he cannot take ecclesiastical orders with emancipation; he cannot make a will; if he leaves his duties on the lord’s manor, the lord can use all necessary force to bring him to perform them back.
T h e North was, o n the other hand, open to many influences and inspirations from outside; but they were adopted o n the North’s own cultural terms. W h e n in the twelfth century the Norwegians became interested in Anglo-Norman romances such as Thomas’s Tristan et Iseult, Chretien de Troyes’ Yvain, and the G e r m a n ballads and stories of Didrik of Bern, they did not read them in French or G e r m a n but had them translated into the prose of the sagas. A vast a m o u n t of foreign literature of widely differing character, both religious and secular, was translated into Old Norse in the course of a few decades; but most of all it was the North’s o w n early history which was used as a subject for its literature.

single object in the Ringerike style from Ringerike. The Urnes style is the last ‘Nordic’ phase. T h e name is taken from one of the finest surviving examples of medieval Scandinavian art, which appears on the carved timbers of the earliest church at Urnes in Sogn, Norway. (The timbers were subsequently re-used in the surviving twelfth-century church (fig. 6)). In contrast to the M a m m e and Ringerike styles n, animals make up the most important group of motifs in this style-extremely stylized quadrupeds (including lions), as well as ribbon-like animals and snakes.
