Beginning in the early Christian period, scholars accepted the Jewish idea of the so-called sabbatical millennium, which held that the world would last six thousand years. The first date projected for the end of the world was not 1000 AD but 500 AD, chosen because Christ was thought to have come when the world was 5,500 years old (Lerner 1992). As the date neared, however, Church officials looked for ways to recalculate and chose 801 AD as the new date. In his book called On the Reckoning of Time (De temporum ratione), Bede pushed the date back and was cautious in his attempts to set the Apocalypse within a broad pattern of Church history (Matter 1992: 47).
The confessors’ most reliable source about hidden behavior was the sinner’s own words. Williams thought that behaviorism was inadequate because it ignored intention, but even in the Middle Ages neither civil nor ecclesiastical authorities Ages ignored intention or limited judgment to behavior that was observable. Declarations of hidden intentions had to be compelled so that there could be no discrepancy between how the sinner behaved and what he or she had intended. The gap between behavior and intention was closed by self-accusation – in theory, at least.
Animals were also put to medicinal uses. The Medicina de Quadrupedibus describes various medical uses of animal products, including the otter, which could cure a headache. “Simmer his brain in three measures of oil in a new crock until a third part is boiled away, put it into a vessel and keep it” (de Vriend 1984: 236, para. 6; see Medicine). We tend to think of medieval farming as a family endeavor, but food production and hence animal husbandry were closely regulated. Land was organized through the system known as the feorm, which required food to be rendered to a central authority, whether an aristocratic household or a monastery.
