This paper discusses the attitude towards women in the Middle ages. It shows that women were considered to be inferior to men and that they were also believed to be the cause of the humanity's downfall. Much of this caricature of women was rooted in the Church's attempt to control the human body. More than anything else, this effort was founded on a deep discomfort that the Church felt with sexuality.
