The Middle Ages: Reality vs. Fiction

by: Christavia Johnson

         Today in our world their are depictions of the medieval era in movies, shows, and even games. But what we see isn’t always the reality of things. Hollywood likes to do what we call sugar coats things, they mix and twist reality with fiction so what you see is true in a way but made glamorous so it seemed as though life was always perfect.

          In the medival era people were very superstitious, showing ignorance of the laws of nature and faith in magic or chance. They believed in thing like witches and wizards. That being hollywood has taken that and made it come to life, hollywood even changed the way the women of the middle ages kept themselves, by showing them how clean their were when they were actually the total opposite.
