In medieval Europe, the Roman Catholic Church was an incredibly powerful force, and not everyone joined a monastery or convent to be closer to God. In the mini-series adaptation of World Without End, many of the characters in the fictional 14th century town of Kingsbridge have taken vows and entered monastic life. Though they are all supposed to be "men of God," some of the monks have less than holy agendas.
