I certainly do not expect you

I certainly do not expect you to take my word. I expect you to look it up and try to refute me. Often I say things that seem provocative, but that's because so much of history has been whitewashed.

Per the point, again not everyone could read, but they almost all went to Church.

Church wasn't just singing, sermoning, and praying. It was the news. It was entertainment. It was dating service. It was charity services. It was society. It was political.

Also most schools were religious.

So the churches essentially had almost the entire information monopoly for most people, and most people never gave that profound fact a second thought.

Again this is not in any way an attack on Christianity. Just pointing out churches had multiple functions back then.
