The life sciences in late antiquity (ad 300-600) and the early Middle Ages (ad 600-1000) centre around the study of three primary categories of ensouled or animate creatures, namely, plants (botany), animals (zoology) and man (anthropology).

The beginning of the Middle• The Middle Ages begins with the Fall of the Roman Empire in 476.• The Romans had ruled provinces in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa for nearly a thousand years.• Challenges to Roman security increased during the first century (0-100 AD) as tribes from Germania (Germany) began to confront the Romans. [1] The Middle Ages, is a period in World History that, according to the Gregorian Calendar, began in the immediate aftermath of the Roman Empire's collapse in 476 AD/CE-(more specifically, the collapse of the Western Roman Empire), until 1400 AD /CE, with the emergence of the (Northern) Italian Renaissance.

When we talk about the Middle Ages, typically, we’re just talking about Europe--you could theoretically talk about "medieval" China if you want to designate the same group of centuries, but since Chinese history is divided into a completely different set of periods based on its own civilizational timeline, that doesn’t make a lot of sense.

[1] The period following the great revival of Ancient Greek and Roman learning in the twelfth century, from 1100 to 1500 AD is sometimes called the High Middle Ages. [1] "From a stratigraphic viewpoint there is nothing wrong with the term "Saxon date," if Saxons and Romans lived side by side from the 1st century BC to the 3rd century AD. Since archaeologically this period is contingent with the High Middle Ages of the 10th century AD--there are no building strata with residential quarters etc. in between--, its dates cannot help but move into the 7th to 10th century AD time span." [1] The Early Medieval Era or the Early Middle Ages are perfectly good terms to differentiate this period (c. 500-1000 AD) from Late Antiquity and the High Middle Ages, but doesn't come with all the baggage.

The Middle Ages are often said to be dark because of a supposed lack of scientific and cultural advancement. [1] Some historians say that the Middle Ages began in AD 476, when the barbarian Odoacer overthrew the emperor Romulus Augustulus, ending the Western Roman Empire. [1] It is also obsolete in discussing the period from 476 AD (the deposition of the last Western emperor, Romulus Augustalus) to 1000 AD, which historians now call late antiquity to the early Middle Ages. [1] Generally speaking, historians use the rough dates of 500 to 1500 AD. The earlier period of 500 to 1000 AD is often differentiated as the Early Middle Ages while the later period of 1000 to 1500 AD is called the Later Middle Ages.

PeriodizationPeriodization Early Middle Ages: 500 - 1000 After fall of Rome, chaos ensues- wars, no trade, signs of The Roman empire gave way to a multitude of quarrelling post-Roman states ; pagan peoples were converted by Christian missionary bishops; and the Mediterranean heritage of the ancient world combined with the different traditions of northern European peoples to set the foundations for the western European kingdoms of the high middle ages and Renaissance. [1] This was always, of course, a very Western European specific view, as is indeed the whole concept of the Middle Ages, being the time sandwiched in the middle, between the fall of the Western Roman Empire, along with its cultural capabilities, and the rediscovery and emulation of Roman culture in the Renaissance.

[1] The Middle Ages of the European world covers approximately 1,000 years of art history in Europe, and at times extended into the Middle East and North Africa. [1] Urban Growth and LifeDuring the High Middle Ages cities andtowns grew dramatically:• Europe was more stable (the threat of invasion had gone and the Knights were away on crusades - not warring at home).• The Crusades united many European Kingdoms and the movements of large numbers of crusaders encouraged trade.• New inventions resulted in improved harvests (e.g. water mills and better plows)• The population boomed from the years 1100-1300.

[1] A fact of life in the European Middle Ages is that there are no paved roads, except the network of Roman roads which where sometimes still usable, mostly in Italy, but, up until the 10th-12th century, also occasionally elsewhere. [1] The Middle Ages of Western Europe are commonly dated from the end of the Western Roman Empire ( 5th century ) until the rise of national monarchies, the start of European overseas exploration, the humanist revival, and the Protestant Reformation starting in 1517. [1] The main focus of this book is also a reaffirmation of an academic tradition that pre-dates the rise of 'Late Antiquity,' in this case the Germanist philological reading of the events of the late Roman empire and early Middle Ages as the intrusion of northern European modes of thought and politics into the western Mediterranean world. [1] In place of the fallen Western Rome, Barbarian kingdoms arose in 5th and 6th centuries and came to decisively shape European culture of the upcoming Middle Ages. [1] The idea of the Middle Ages in general, and of the Dark Ages in particular, is specifically European in origin--or rather, Western European. [1] For late Middle Ages: Western European armies use full plate armored cavalry, Eastern European armies use massed mounted and armored (mail or plate+mail) archers. [1] Wickham, one of the leading historians of the European Middle Ages, offers his own unique perspective on the period in this lively survey, which squeezes an extraordinary amount of information into a modest 257 pages of text. [1] The optimistic take on this is that beginning with the material covered in the next course, there's a very rapid ascent from 1000 to about 1300, a tremendous growth of the European economy and a tremendous expansion of both population, artistic, political, and intellectual creativity that is the central period of the Middle Ages. [1] The Middle Ages formed the middle period in a traditional schematic division of European history into three 'ages': the classical civilization of Antiquity, the Middle Ages, and modern times. [1] The High Middle Ages was the period of European history in the 11th, 12th, and 13th centuries (1000-1300 CE) while recognizable nations were forming. [1] These migrations marked the beginning of a new period of European history called the Middle Ages.

[1] Some historians go as far as to regard that year as marking the beginning of the Middle Ages, an East European equivalent of 476, with Bayan conveniently replacing Odoacer as the first barbarian ruler after the end of Antiquity. [1] The first Renaissance of the Middle Ages was halted by a natural phenomenon, the Black Death, which killed over a third of Europeans, especially in the growing urban areas.

[1] Unlike the popular impression, the European Middle Ages, especially from the 12 th century onwards, were an era of impressive scientific progress and innovation. [1] According to the usual narrative of the history of progress, medicine in the European Middle Ages - from around the 5th to the 15th centuries - was a formless mass of superstition and folk remedies; the very antithesis of science.

[1] The book treats the Middle Ages as traditionally defined--namely, the years from approximately 500 to 1500 a.d. --in a well-balanced fashion, conferring roughly equal coverage to the early, central, and late medieval periods. [1] Most historians link the beginning of the Middle Ages with the fall of the Roman Empire, the long decline of which can be traced to the a.d. 200s. [1] History does not lend itself to such simple, sweeping categorizations of broad eras. (Classical Antiquity is something roughly like 800 BC-500 AD, and the Middle Ages is something like 500 AD to 1500 AD. All of those dates have a million problems and are essentially just conventions for neatness, but they’re roughly accurate.) [1] Historians disagree about the best way to classify eras of history, but many people use the term "middle ages" to identify the period between ancient times and modern times, a thousand years from approximately 500 AD to 1500 AD. Although civilization was in decline at the beginning of this period, a powerful new Islamic civilization was about to arise in the Middle East, and older civilizations would eventually revive. [1] Even in modern times, Arab historians do not typically view the millennium that began in a.d. 500 as a "middle age," especially since the Muslim world does not use the same calendar as Europe: instead of dating their years from the birth of Jesus Christ, Muslims begin with the prophet Muhammad's escape from the city of Mecca in a.d. 622.

[1] Medieval Science " During the Middle Ages, the best scientists and doctors were not in Europe, but in the Islamic Empire to the south and east Many historians, especially Renaissance scholars, viewed the Middle Ages as a period of stagnation, sandwiched between the magnificent Ancient Roman period and the glorious Renaissance. [1] The first few centuries of the middle ages in Europe are often called the Dark Ages because civilization had collapsed after the Fall of Rome, and Europe was torn by widespread fighting among barbarian tribes This term, "the Middle Ages," was first used by Italian intellectuals during the Renaissance of the fifteenth century to denigrate the period that separated them from the authors and artists they so admired in classical antiquity (ancient Greece and Rome). [1] Ever since the fifteenth century, historians of Europe have referred to the period between the fall of the Western Roman Empire and the Italian Renaissance (which took place in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries) as the Middle Ages. [1] Broadly speaking, the Middle Ages is the period of time in Europe between the end of antiquity in the fifth century and the Renaissance, or rebirth of classical learning, in the fifteenth century and sixteenth centuries.

[1] Medieval Science " During the Middle Ages, the best scientists and doctors were not in Europe, but in the Islamic Empire to the south and east As time went on, barbarian chiefs would become nobles and kings, and these German-speaking tribes would evolve into the powerful kingdoms that ruled Europe later during the middle ages. [1] Although the term Middle Ages covers the years between 500 and 1500 throughout the world, this timeline is based on events specifically in Europe during that time KEY TOPICS As time went on, barbarian chiefs would become nobles and kings, and these German-speaking tribes would evolve into the powerful kingdoms that ruled Europe later during the middle ages. [1]

In Rome’s absence, Europe in the Early Middle Ages lacked a large kingdom or other political structure as a single centralizing force, apart from a brief period during the reign of the Frankish Emperor Charlemagne (more on that later) The turmoil of the so-called Barbarian invasions in the beginning of the period gradually gave way to more stabilized societies and states as the origins of contemporary Eastern Europe began to take shape during the High Middle Ages. [1] Later, the term expanded to refer more generally to the supposed lack of cultural advancement in Europe from the fall of the Roman Empire to the dawn of the Renaissance, a period officially known as the Early Middle Ages (500-1000 A.D.). [1] The Middle Ages refers to the period in Europe dating from the collapse of the Roman Empire in the West, around the 5th century, to about the 15th century, or the beginning of the Renaissance. [1]

The world after the Middle Ages• The Late Middle Ages (1300-1500) had been a time of climate change, war, famine and poverty.• Despite these events there were several reasons the period from 1500 was the beginning of Modern Europe. - Cities in Italy were rediscovering the influence of Greek and Roman culture. [1] When people use the terms Medieval Times, Middle Ages, and Dark Ages they are generally referring to the same period of time While the term dark ages is no longer widely used, it may best be described as Early Middle Ages -- the period following the decline of Rome in the Western World. [1] The Church in the Early Middle Ages covers the time from the deposition of the last Western Emperor in 476 and his replacement with a barbarian king, Odoacer, to the coronation of Charlemagne as "Emperor of the Romans" by Pope Leo III in Rome on Christmas Day, 800. [1]

Some English historians will say if there is any kind of 'Dark Ages' in medieval history, it is during the earliest part of the Middle Ages, right after the fall of Roman power in Britain around the fifth and sixth centuries Dr. Susan Snyder, my medieval and ancient history professor, argued that the term "Dark Age" was inappropriate for the early Middle Ages because we still have some records from it and some innovation took place. [1] Since the explosion of Medieval scholarship in the 20th century, so much has been revealed about that period that it has become known as the "Early Middle Ages" by most scholars and the term "Dark Ages" has been mostly abandoned. [1] I will ignore the Late Middle Ages since that period of time is usually referred to as the Renaissance, except to say that there was a sort of mini-dark age in the wake of the Black Death of 1349 and the general breakdown of Medieval institutions throughout the fourteenth fifteenth century. [1] The Middle Ages AKA the Medieval or Mediaeval period, is reckoned to commence in Britain after the withdrawal of the Roman Legions - that would include most of the fifth century, and then every century until the modern era starts. [1] The medieval Church grew into the most powerful institution in Europe, thanks in no small part to the rise of monasticism, a movement that began in the third century with St. Anthony of Egypt and would rise to its most influential point in the High Middle Ages (1000-1300 A.D.). [1] In the culture of Europe, several features surfaced soon after 1000 that mark the end of the Early Middle Ages: the rise of the medieval communes, the reawakening of city life, and the appearance of the burgher class, the founding of the first universities, the rediscovery of Roman law, and the beginnings of vernacular literature. [1] The first few centuries of the middle ages in Europe are often called the Dark Ages because civilization had collapsed after the Fall of Rome, and Europe was torn by widespread fighting among barbarian tribes. [1] The Migration period, also called the Barbarian Invasions or Völkerwanderung (German: wandering of the peoples), was a period of human migration that occurred roughly between the years 300 to 700 CE in Europe, marking the transition from Late Antiquity to the Early Middle Ages. [1] The era called the Middle Ages (c. 450-1450) in Europe, corresponds to the post-classical period The "dark ages" are the period in the middle ages which were relatively undocumented. [1] The Early Middle Ages includes the Migration period (also referred to as the "Dark Ages"), the Ostrogoths and Visigoths, the Merovingians, Anglo-Saxon England, the Frankish Empire and the Viking Age. [1] The period known as the "Dark Ages" is generally used these days to refer to the Early Middle Ages (though some popular writers still, erroneously, use the term "Dark Ages" as a synonym for the Middle Ages generally, something historians abandoned long ago). [1]

This term, "the Middle Ages," was first used by Italian intellectuals during the Renaissance of the fifteenth century to denigrate the period that separated them from the authors and artists they so admired in classical antiquity (ancient Greece and Rome). [1] Originally the term characterized the bulk of the Middle Ages, or roughly the 6th to 13th centuries, as a period of intellectual darkness between extinguishing the "light of Rome" after the end of Late Antiquity, and the rise of the Italian Renaissance in the 14th century. [1] The late Middle Ages shade imperceptibly into the equally vague period known as "the Renaissance": and it was during "the Renaissance" (and, later, during "the Reformation" and "the Enlightenment") that people began talking about the "the Middle Ages" or even "the Dark Ages," writing off the preceding ten centuries as a useless detour. [1] People in the Middle Ages did not think of their time as "a middle period" between ancient and modern times; that idea only arose during the Renaissance. [1] The Middle Ages got its name because in early history writing there was a time period of approximately one thousand years in between the collapse of the Roman Empire in the west and the Renaissance, and this time period needed a name. [1] No wonder that the eminent American historian of medieval science Edward Grant has described the Middle Ages as "one of the most innovative periods in human history," during which "the foundations of Western civilization were laid and the way prepared for uninterrupted advancements over the next 500 years" ( Science and Religion 12, 13). [1]

During late antiquity and the early Middle Ages, political, social, economic, and cultural structures were profoundly reorganized, as Roman imperial traditions gave way to those of the Germanic peoples who established kingdoms in the former Western Empire. [1] Not only did Justinian restore some western territories to the Roman Empire, but he also codified Roman law (with his codification remaining in force in many areas of Europe until the 19th century) and built the largest and the most technically advanced edifice of the Early Middle Ages, the Hagia Sophia. [2] The dominance of the Church during the Early Middle Ages was a major reason later scholars--specifically those of the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century and the Enlightenment in the 17th and 18th centuries--branded the period as "unenlightened" (otherwise known as dark), believing the clergy repressed intellectual progress in favor of religious piety. [1]

The European Middles Ages was a society dominated by the Catholic Church, but with several other religions represented under that umbrella, such as Judaism, Islam, and various forms of Paganism. [1] Multilingual linguistic note: In English, the noun is always plural -- "Middle Ages" -- wheras it (apparently) tends to be plural in a lot of other European languages -- "Moyen Age." [1]

Although once regarded as a time of uninterrupted ignorance, superstition, and social oppression, the Middle Ages are now understood as a dynamic period during which the idea of Europe as a distinct cultural unit emerged. [1] They saw the Romans and Greeks as the progenitors of their own scientific ends, the Middle Ages as a bad period of churchy ignorance, and their own time as the culmination of all these drives. (Never mind that A. Roman/Greek "Science" was completely unlike modern "Science", B. Plenty of technological and theoretical advances happened in the Middle Ages too. [1] While it’s true that such innovations as Roman concrete were lost, and the literacy rate was not as high in the Early Middle Ages as in ancient Rome, the idea of the so-called "Dark Ages" came from Renaissance scholars like Petrarch, who viewed ancient Greece and Rome as the pinnacle of human achievement. [1] When you think about the name "Middle Ages," you might be thinking, "Middle of what?" Basically, the Middle Ages was the period between the fall of the Roman Empire and the beginning of the Italian Renaissance, when the Classical style of learning and culture that was practiced in Ancient Rome and Greece experienced a rebirth. [1] Summary of Medieval and Renaissance Criticism Submitted by R. Zothanmawia V Semester BA R/no: 1101BA005 MEDIEVAL CRITICISM The period between the Classical Age and the Renaissance is vaguely named the Middle Age or the Medieval Age The era between the fall of Rome and the Renaissance is a thousand-year period we call the Middle Ages. [1]

The concepts associated with the term reek of romanticised Gibbonian cliches about how the Romans were wise and rational and modern and somehow more like "us" than early medieval people and so the early Middle Ages was a bad thing that we somehow escaped from and "got back" to being more like the wonderful Romans. [1] Medieval New Latin medium aevum Middle Ages: 1 : of, relating to, or characteristic of the Middle Ages 2 : extremely outmoded or antiquated (Students: as you study, think of other terms from history that have become adjectives in common use today. [3]

Giving up "Dark Ages" does not mean "abandoning our ability to talk about it at all" ! One can perfectly say something like "Following the long decline, unrest and ultimately disintegration of the Roman Empire, the Early Middle Ages were in general a period of disorder, fragmentation and reduced wealth and intellectual production, but also of innovation, adaptation and recover." [1] The Early Middle Ages followed the decline of the Western Roman Empire and preceded the High Middle Ages (c. 10th to 13th centuries). [2] The Early Middle Ages marked the beginning of the cultural distinctions between Western and Eastern Europe north of the Mediterranean. [2] During the early Middle Ages, the divide between Eastern and Western Christianity widened, paving the way for the East-West Schism in the 11th century. [2] The Christianization of Germanic tribes began in the 4th century with the Goths and continued throughout the Early Middle Ages, led in the 6th to 7th centuries by the Hiberno-Scottish mission and replaced in the 8th to 9th centuries by the Anglo-Saxon mission, with Anglo-Saxons like Alcuin playing an important role in the Carolingian renaissance. [2] By 1000, even Iceland had become Christian, leaving only more remote parts of Europe ( Scandinavia, the Baltic, and Finno-Ugric lands) to be Christianized during the High Middle Ages. [2] The institutional structure of Christianity in the west during this period is different from what it would become later in the Middle Ages. [2] The term "Late Antiquity" is used to emphasize elements of continuity with the Roman Empire, while "Early Middle Ages" is used to emphasize developments characteristic of the later medieval period. [2] Although the term Middle Ages covers the years between 500 and 1500 throughout the world, this timeline is based on events specifically in Europe during that time Just for comparison, Chris Wickham’s new survey of the Middle Ages Medieval Europe is roughly 200-250 pages, and even there, he’s covering an average of about five years a page.
