Summary
Heralded is one the world's most compelling Church historians, Chris Bellitto transports you into the heart of a strange and wonderful world-the world of medieval Europe.

Explore some of the most powerful theological ideas, economic tensions, and political struggles that shaped Western civilization.

This series traces western European civilization-with detours to the East-from the transformation of the Roman Empire to a thousand-year medieval period that started slowly before 1000, flowered for 300 years, and then declined sharply with the Black Death and social revolts until Constantinople fell in 1453 and Columbus sailed in 1492. Explore Charlemagne's renaissance, agricultural and commercial revolutions, new types of religious life introduced by spiritual masters from Benedict to Francis, dynastic wars, and courtly literature.

You will treasure this course as a timeless resource for understanding the people and events that have shaped faith, art, medicine, literature, and government. Encounter famous historical and literary figures such as Mohammed, Augustine, Richard the Lionhearted, and King Arthur, in their own historical context. You'll understand how the Middle Ages fit within the broader historical timeline of Europe and the rest of the world.

This course promises to delight and amaze you.

If my history tutors were half as motivated and projected the enthusiasm of Christopher M Bellitto, my love of the subject would have known no bounds. This man is master of holding one's attention through a series of mini lectures be conveying his love of the subject. A MUST read for anyone with even the slightest interest in Medieval history. Get this wonderful presentation.

A great lecture series and exactly what I hoped for. Although the author’s comparisons to American life and history are a little far-fetched, especially for non-American listeners.

Fabulous narration and clear easy to understand delivery. Very enjoyable way to understand the Middle Ages from a concise overview.

Interesting and made more so by the speaker’s passion for his subject.

The material in this book is spot on and I have no complaints at all about the book of the narrator who is also the author.
