comment Who was Asselin FitzArthur?
Very interesting indeed, was not able to find anything more online either. A professor said that there are indeed many people in history that we know very little about.

@SamuelRussell Thank you very much your last comment was most elucidating, you have helped me debunk my "thesis". Good thing I did not write too much yet.

@SamuelRussell I disagree with you on the human nature changing part but don't mean to imply that "religion is the opiate of the people". I will try to remove my unintended "liberal" spin.

K.L. I have come to the conclusion that my question is too loose so to speak. I don't think I am asking a how did they cope without (insert some yet to be discovered technology ). In Europe social mobility was very limited. Maybe I should throw out inability to relocate. Also religious institutions are waning in Europe, that's a fact. They used to be very strong.

@ihtkwot I am intentionally leaving room for different ideas but I do have a specific question that is "Did religion thrive in middle ages due to relatively few distractions?" Thanks for the pointer and I edited to better state my questions. Hope I am being clear enough.
