Question
good day
where can i learn more about money lending and banking during the medieval period.
just as how the financial history of the last 500 years can be read about in detail; where can one learn more about the financial world in the medieval period including more on banking and financiers of that period.

Answer
Sam, Here is are videos that may be helpful.  One covers early means of exchange and barter, through the fairly modern use of money.
I suggest you watch these videos in their entirty.

Additionally, the Medici family line between the early 1200s to the 14th century were leading money lenders. So that would be another avenue of research .
