Description:

This paper explains that the period from 1200 to 1600 AD was one of the most stimulating and yet cruelest eras in American, European, Asian, African and Middle Eastern history. As the history of the world during these centuries is analyzed, the author underscores that, without the fall of the Roman Empire, the reported shifts in control, economic strength and ideology, contemporary society would be different. The paper relates the influences of personalities, such as Genghis Khan, Kublai Khan, Tamerlane and Christopher Columbus.

Conclusion

From the Paper:

"The Byzantine Empire sustained an advanced cultural, political, and economic system. Orthodox Christianity characterized the Byzantine Empire; however, simultaneously, a different type of Christianity was emerging that was not yet formally establishment. The foundations of Catholicism were developing in Central and Western Europe. Even though the diminutive kingdoms of Western Europe were diffused in the early Middle Ages, the territories known as the fiefdoms of Western Europe shared common ground: Latin as a language, Franco, a mixture of languages used to communicate by people who had different native languages, and the feudal society of the Catholic Church."
