Medieval Europe: A Complete Overview



Medieval Europe is a feature length journey through the Middle Ages! It is divided into 5 major timeframes. The Early Middle Ages picks up after the fall of Rome, and deals with the rise of monasticism, the Carolingians, Magyar and Viking invasions, and the feudal and manor systems. Then we head into the High Middle Ages, with a glimpse at village and city life, as well as a tour of each main region, beginning with England. This is followed by a quick overview of the Crusades and religious orders, and then the Late Middle Ages, going over the Black Death, Hundred Years War, and Western Schism. Europe recovers during the Italian Renaissance, as we take a look at the famous artists and humanists of the period, before another short tour of where each region stands as the Medieval age ends. The timeframe goes a bit beyond year 500 to 1500.

This is our DOUBLE-SIZED 7th episode in the Medieval World mega-documentary!

0:00 Early Middle Ages

The Medieval World Series:

Welcome to The Medieval World series! This series is meant to summarize broad topics in history and balances political history and events, with social/daily life, and culture. If you’ve watched our History of the World documentary, this series is a perfect next step. The videos are standalone, but presented in a chronological fashion. The series will be divided into 8 videos about the Medieval Period, which we call Phase 2. Once these 8 videos are completed, we will move onto Phase 3, but this project will be considered completed, and compiled into ONE MEGA-DOCUMENTARY containing all 8 parts.

    Pick any era, you'll find a war. Politics is rooted in power, not a solution to the world's problems. Was it Einstein who said, keep doing the same thing expecting different results is akin to insanity? But education is the answer! Germany was the most educated nation on the planet, yet a nation of gas ovens and concentration camps.

    It’s miracle t me that even one man survived the meal he’s. The constant wars held a very high death toll survival would be pure miracle to say the least. If not the rulers , the religious wars would have been dearly. Perhaps all these senseless wars can help explain the mass migration from Europe in the 1600 hundreds. AND THEY ARE ATILL FIGHTING TODAY IN THE 21st century so Al this warmongering along with he lack of medical knowledge the deaths were inevitable.

    I really enjoyed this video. The only thing that put me off, however, is that it doesn't sound like an actual person is narrating… emphasis is in the wrong place and feels like Alexa or Google is narrating. Apologies if I've got this wrong and the narrator is an actual person.

    Excellent summary and great video series! Just a tiny comment: on the map shown for 1154 and the angevin kings, Anjou is placed too far north. It is south, not east of Brittany

  13. @esmeraldaweatherwaxe970

    ​ @MadeInHistory There's a yellow area in the Netherlands, (on the map showing the treaty of Verdun) which accoring to the colour code would make it part of the Papal States, but in those days that was not even land, back then it was a sea.. we didn't create any land in that area untill the last century.

    so did you mean just the few tiny fishing islands in that sea or is that a general mistake on the map?

    Good documentary for those who already knows who all these people areThe Carolingians which is a north germanic tribe and Great pride of Sweden where they calls themselves karolinere same with all the different goths they are also a north Germanic tribe from the place called Sweden now and the Guy called charlamagne 😂 which he was called because people had a hard time pronouncing he's norse name kjell magne like The Norwegian prime minister all these tribe's was from the norse pre viking age viking culture same with a lot of other groups mentioned here it's almost like it is ignored on purpose just like with the Varangians which is the pre Norwegian Norse vikings of varanger called varanger garden in Norway also known as væringer and Rus Viking's who established kieva Rus which is now Ukraine and Russia. maybe you should make a documentary to introduce all these Norse Germanic tribes as part one of this documentary and include where the Saxon's came from which is also a norse Germanic tribe anyways all these ignored fact's makes me wonder 🤔 who the people i don't already know very well from our national history are and where they originally came from.anyways good summary for those who are already knowledgeable about history

    This is because Europe in those days were still uneducated or we can describe them as bit uncivilized ..

    Its very important to study the scholar’s agenda before taking their work under advisement. The moors had an important part of the development in Europe history and they were not mentioned not once in this video essay.

    As soon as I heard about Clovis I converting to catholicism in the 5th century (2:39) I closed this video and sent it to spam as Catholicism came out only in 1054 as a schism of Orthodox Christianity.

    1391 and the Alhambra Decree weren’t just random occurrences. Christians were horrified by their teachings. People don’t like being ruled by people they can’t relate to

    2:09 what? why people who make historic videos insist in this error?? how can this channel be credible in history when mention Spain back areound 418? when Spain only became a thing after 1492. A real historian would refer to Iberia instead because is the name of the Peninsula and because the Visigoths didnt took over only of what is today spain but took also Portugal and Andorra. Get your facts right please as this continuous error is unacceptable from someone who owns a History Channel.

    Do you realize that the apostle Paul planned to take the gospel to the east but the Holy Spirit didn’t allow. He sent him to the west because it would be better because it would be accepted.

How Africa Shaped Our Christmas Celebrations: Discover the Hidden History



Interestingly, many Christians, particularly Black Christians, are often unaware of the true origins of the December global celebration. Previously, the celebration was variably scheduled in January, March, April, May, or September, reflecting uncertainty about the actual birthdate of Jesus.
The holidays we observe today have their roots in sacred days from ancient Kemetic or what is popularly known as Egyptian culture, where these occasions were timed with celestial events such as the alignment of stars, constellations, and the sun’s position relative to Earth.
