About the Middle Ages
The Middle Ages, also known as the Dark Ages, Medieval Times and the Age of Faith, lasted
from 400AD to 1400AD. During this period, Rome considered itself the centre of the known
universe with the Pope as the supreme ruler.
A Gothic cathedral Notre-Dame in Paris,
perhaps, or Chartres, or Salisbury, would represent the Middle Ages, in such a review of
climactic achievements. The centre of gravity of European civilization had shifted to what
had been the northern boundaries of the Roman world.
