Describe examples of the similarities and differences between monasticism and feudalism.
I don't know how to compare the two. My textbook says: Feudalism was a system in which weak noblemen gave up their lands and much of their freedom to more powerful lords in return for protection. Monasticism was a way of life in which people gathered together to spend their days in prayer and self-denial.
HELP!!!

    What does this have to do with fine art? To learn more about feudalism and monasticism, "google" both words and read lots. I'm not sure the two things are similar, but see what you can find and what conclusions YOU can draw.

    I'll give you one hint of things to look for: both monasteries and convents had to have permission and were required to pay taxes (in some form) to the King or regional Lord, as were the nobles and peasants, for protection.
