Chevalier Charles Coulombe on Medieval (sic!) Guilds

The Chevalier discusses a topic very close to my heart! For one thing, I've been a student of mediæval history since I was a lad. For another thing, the guilds were proposed by both Their Holinesses Pope Leo XIII and Pope Pius XI as a model for Christian reconstruction in their Social Encyclicals.

He also has some trenchant points about the differences between mediæval and modern societies.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
