The Power of a Hierarch


This picture represents a hierarchy. It is clear that everyone in this social pyramid falls under the authority of the group above them, including the highest most group, which in most cases during the time this system was relevant would fall under the authority of God. This system of hierarchy would ensure order in society by showing who did what job and who had what power. This system of society was generally used to also represent government. It would show who had the utmost power.
