I just read the most awesome fic over at [livejournal.com profile] springtime_gen: The Friar's Calling. Read it. You'll be glad you did. Below are the summary and the rec I did for another site.

Story Summary: Long before the Statute of Secrecy, when Kings still sought counsel from wizards and scholars debated magic at the great centres of learning, England seethed as her nobles struggled to check the power of the King – and one young friar found his new path taking an unexpected turn.
Why you think this story should be read: I’ve never read a historical HP fic set in the High Middle Ages before, and I think this would be hard to top. Religion, history, and magic are deftly interwoven. Brother Thomas’ (later the Fat Friar) evolving attitude toward magic still captures the spirit of the times while feeling very true to HP. The OCs (and Sir Cadogan) are a delight with special mention going to the charming and sympathetic Leonius Malfoy.
