The Middle Ages is a period of history that is one, which slowed the development of mankind. Also known as the Dark Ages it was a time that the Church all but stopped the advancement of all fields of knowledge. This time period lasted between 800 to almost 1000 years. The Tree Maker has listed this information so our visitors will have a little knowledge on what their ancestors had to go through. We hope the information that we have listed on the Dark Ages or Middle Ages will be helpful in understanding why record keeping was not as good as other times. Please let us know if you think we should add other times to our genealogy website.

The Middle Ages

Display Your Family History and Coat of Arms

The Middle Ages: A term applied loosely to that period in European history which lies between the ancient and modern civilizations. Various dates are given for the beginning of the period: the fall of Rome in 476; the crowning of Charlemagne in 800; the death of Charlemagne in 814; the end of the Frankish Empire in 843. The period is variously conceived to have closed with the Reformation in Germany; with the discovery of America by Columbus; with the invention of printing and with the end of the Thirty Years' War in the Peace of Westphalia {1648}. Most authorities, however, begin the period between the fall of Rome and the Revival of Learning the Dark Ages.

The period of something like a thousand years marked a gradual transition from semi-civilization of the masses to the light of an awakening consciousness induced by the strong influence of the Church and the spread of learning throughout Western Europe which followed the exodus of scholars from the onrushing Turks when the conquered Constantinople {1453}. The common people were largely engulfed in serfdom at the time the Middle Ages were supposed to have begun. There was no learning except at the top among the classes that existed, where many brilliant men kept aloft the torch of knowledge. Few people ever left their immediate neighborhoods, and therefore could know nothing of the world beyond their doors. Feudal government prevailed, in which the masses had no part. The Crusades opened up new vistas, and the Crusaders brought back quickening influences. Mental horizons broadened and there was an urge to higher aspirations. When scholars scattered over Western Europe from the sway of the Turk, enlightenment such as had not been hitherto known began to spread, and pointed the way to the revival of learning and the Renaissance.
