Description

Between AD 500 and 1500 there occured tremendous variations in levels of civilization; for instance, China and India reached peaks of development while Western Europe remained in the Dark Ages. Even though the disparity between cultures could be vast, Christians, Jews, Muslims and Orientals learned from each other, despite their animosities. Called "The Age of Belief", monuments from the Middle Ages surround us still, with the power to inspire awe and admiration in people centuries removed from the cultures to which they gave rise.show more
