History of Middle Ages and Early Modern Period

The Middle Ages span approximately 1,000 years, from the fifth century to the fifteenth century, and can be divided into two sub-periods: Early Middle Ages and Late Middle Ages (or High Middle Ages). Throughout the era, the European continent has experienced substantial changes in all aspects of life. Although religion is the most dominant issue in private and social life, our students and researchers delve into this era's abundance of culture, engage in its political and philosophical issues, and analyze the relationships between the people and their natural surroundings, including inter-religion relations and matters of conversion. According to the consensus, the fifteenth century marks the inception of the Early Modern Period, a time when thinkers formulated new philosophies, a period of scientific revolution, and an era of cultural developments, both individual and collective. This is the period when explorers discover the New World (America).
