Channel 4

Back in the 14th century, they didn't have things like Facebook and Tinder and OKCupid. Mostly they just had loveless political marriages and the plague. But that doesn't mean there weren't parameters for medieval dateability.

How dateable would you be?

1. Are you literate?

2. How old are you?

3. Do you now have, or have you ever had, the plague?

4. Which of the four classical temperaments corresponds best with your personality?

5. How would you describe your social class?

6. What color is your hair?

7. How often do you make the pilgrimage to big towns for feast-days?

8. How tall are you?

9. How well connected are your parents, politically speaking?

10. Have you ever had carnal relations outside of wedlock, questioned the teachings of the Church, or even just found yourself being really impatient one time?
