what activities are considered sin on the lord’s day? is it true that it’s mortal sin to work if it’s not necessary? what about going out and doing things? doesn’t that cause others to work?
seems like in the middle ages, from what i’ve read, sunday rest observances weren’t so strict like in the protestant reformation. there were lots of leisure activity, peasants were allowed to work in their fields if the weather was going to be bad, there were sunday markets, sports activities. not sure about restaurants though, there probably weren’t relaly restaurants as we know it today. thoughts?
