European Middle Ages
The expression Middle Ages tells us a lot more around the Renaissance which followed it than it can about the era itself. Beginning around the 14th century, European thinkers, writers and artists started to look back as well as celebrate the art form and lifestyle of ancient Rome and Greece. Appropriately, they dismissed the period after the autumn of Rome as a center or perhaps Dark age where no scientific accomplishments were definitely made, no great art produced, no great leaders born. This particular way of considering the era in the midst of the fall of Rome and also the rise of the Renaissance prevailed until fairly recently. Nevertheless, modern scholars note the era was as vibrant and complex as any other era.
