ERA 3 - Time of monks and Knights


The Middle Ages span from 500 till 1500. It's some sort of intermediate period between the ancient time and the early modern time that starts from 1500.

This era is about the Dark Middle Ages (500-1000).

Monks and Knights represent the two most important groups (clergy and nobility) of the class society during the Middle Ages.  

Characteristic aspects:

9. The expansion of Christianity throughout Europe.


10. The rise and expansion of Islam.


11. The almost complete replacement in Western Europe of the agricultural-urban society by a self-sustaining agricultural society, organized through demesnes (parcels of land in the ownership of a lord or chieftain) and serfs.  


12. The emergence of Feudalism.
