Join us on a fascinating journey through the Middle Ages, a period of profound historical shifts and transformations that shaped the modern world. Contrary to its earlier designation as the “Dark Ages,” the Middle Ages reverberates with discoveries, innovations, events, and historical processes that are integral to the world we know now.

In this course, our expert teachers will lead you on a sumptuous tour of this revolutionary time, highlighting the many seminal developments of the medieval era that illuminate our understanding of the world. You’ll learn about the remarkable intellectual expansion of the High Middle Ages, which produced a global movement toward education and empirical observation, led to Western universities and set the stage for both the Renaissance and the modern scientific revolution. The calendars we use today, and the ways in which we think about time and its measurement, date to the Middle Ages, in the medieval creation of the Christian, Jewish, and Islamic calendars. You’ll also discover core features of the global civilization we know now, such as agricultural and technological innovations that made huge populations possible.

Moreover, numerous inventions that are essential to our world date from the Middle Ages, such as mechanical clocks, suspension bridges, gunpowder, paper, compasses, odometers, and the banking system. The medieval mathematical revolution, which started in the Islamic world and transformed Europe, gave us the number zero, negative numbers, decimals, fractions, and algebra. As a key point of this course, the extraordinary historical currents and advances of the Middle Ages unfolded not only in the West but across the globe, from Europe, Africa, and the Middle East to Asia, the Americas, and beyond.
