National Catholic Register, Anna Abbot: “Going medieval” is a term synonymous with ignorance, barbarism and being uncouth. The Middle Ages are often portrayed as a bleak time, living in the shadows of Roman civilization. The Middle Ages also tend to be caricatured, from the gory violence of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” to the goofy exoticism of Renaissance Fairs. But the Middle Ages lasted about a millennium from the Dark Ages after the Roman Empire’s collapse through the early, mid and high Medieval periods. A civilization that has such longevity is remarkable, considering the upheavals of modernity. Can we get beyond the stereotypes and learn something from the Middle Ages? Review is here.
