* CorruptChurch: Medieval Western Europe allegedly got it bad enough to be commented on in several contemporary sources. The most notable of these is Dante, who puts several popes in Hell for corruption in the ''[[TheDivineComedy Inferno]]'', and the one pope we meet in the ''Purgatorio'' is also there for being too greedy before he repented.

Note: this is older than ''UsefulNotes/JohannesGutenberg's printing press'' (1439 CE), not metal movable-type characters (ca. 1230 CE, Korea), movable-type printing (1040 CE, China), and certainly not wood-block printing (220 CE or earlier, China again). In short, the Middle Ages -- assuming you don't take Petrarch's definition for it, as he lived in the 1300s. Even [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare all things Shakespearean]], Literature/DonQuixote, and many late medieval and Renaissance printed books are only OlderThanSteam.
