The Christians were not heavily persecuted. That's an exaggeration . They persecuted the pagans far more after they took over

Are people seriously asking for you to provide a brief, shorter version?! This man has condensed 1000 years of history in to a seriously interesting and informative 8 minute video. Thanks for this.

Your editing is good but the information is boring and makes you want to stop watching this video

Medieval art is over shadowed by the classical and the Renaissance periods.

I wouldn't say it's underrated. It just appears kinda ugly to us these days because it's not geometric. And I always wondered about that. Why did the painters in those days paint such simplistic and "ugly" pictures? Why does the art of the people who built great cathedrals and castles look like it came from little more than cave men who didnt know how to use angles?

I know this is a huge time period to cover, but still, I am surprised there was no mention of medieval tapestry. Still, a very nice video, thank you for it.

Take in mind that there are many interpretations as to when did a certain historical period start and end. This is because the is no certain year that a certain time period starts, it is, logically, a gradual change. For example, in Latvia a common view, as opposed to the one in the video, is that the start of the middle ages is 476 (fall of the Roman empire) and 1500 (rounded off number due to many important events occuring at this time).

1400 is generally accepted as the renaissance birth. 1500 is start of High renaissance.

@0:39: What was that period he said after "Celtic", and before "Romanesque"?
Le Huy-Anh (3 years ago)
+MoochagraProphet Yeah, thanks. I did eventually figure out what they said later in the video, though I'm looking for what is definitive of artistic expression during the reign of Otto.

AMAZING anything else I've been able to find was mostly about religions even if art- and medieval-related lectures. Love the whole series, by the way. Easy, dynamic and interesting. Lots of details but not too much. Shame it's not as popular as it should be!
