VA SOL: WHI.9

Essential Understandings Overarching Goals: The Roman Catholic Church grew in importance after
Roman authority declined. It became the unifying force in western Europe. During the Middle Ages, the
Pope anointed the Emperors, missionaries carried Christianity to the Germanic tribes, and the Church
served the social, political, and religious needs of the people. The decline of Roman influence in Western
Europe left people with little protection against invasion, so they entered into feudal agreements with
landholding lords who promised them protection. The alliance between Frankish kings and the Church reestablished Roman culture (Christianity) in Western Europe. Invasions by Angles, Saxons, Magyars, and
Vikings disrupted the social, economic, and political order of Europe.
