"many of today's faithful feel that things should get back to the way they were." - Putting a (citation needed) after a statement that is almost impossible to prove is simply a way to get around replacing fact with opinion. This shouldn't be here. --Dave3172 16:47, 9 March 2007 (EST)

I agree, Dave. I'm editing it away.--AmesG 22:48, 9 March 2007 (EST)

It seems there may be a pattern of this. We may want to watch this article. Also, how about a more in-depth exploration of the Middle Ages? Right now it's fairly narrow and shallow--just an offhand mention of religion in the era--and some discussion of art, culture, and government would make this a lot more interesting. I'm also not sure it was monolithically religious--consider, for example, the somewhat anti-clerical sentiments in Chaucer. --John 22:51, 9 March 2007 (EST)

I added some good stuff. Just general, citing a basic history textbook and notes I just dug up from my old "My Documents" folder... good stuff. If any of you are experts on the specifics, I encourage you to contribute.--AmesG 22:57, 9 March 2007 (EST)

While I like your additions, I give it 10 minutes before they're edited away. Keep rolling that boulder up the hill...--Dave3172 23:07, 9 March 2007 (EST)

I fail to see how the crusades were a tragedy. ATB 12:26, 10 March 2007 (EST)


Did a major rewrite of this thing, because frankly, it was a mess. Given the impossibility of saying anything definite about a period of 1000 years, I suggest using this page as an introduction for the Middle Ages, where we try to describe some of the general trends and changes during the period. Then we can go into greater detail in the pages about the sub-periods. Also, I hope other people will join in on this. I don't mind writing it myself, but I'm afraid it'll be more like an essay than a encyclopedic article in that case. ;-) AKjeldsen 06:47, 17 April 2007 (EDT)

Hey, studied this quite closely last year at College so I may be able to lend a hand. Anything specific? Graham 14:31, 23 September 2007 (EDT)


I think most conservative christians should realize that the middle ages were promiscuous, had abortion, and tolerated homosexuality. CaptainRoemer 10:53, 3 May 2008 (EDT)

Some would argue that that is not among the most accurate of statements. --wikinterpreter Modspeed!

European or not

While I agree that "medieval" can refer to other entities such as Japan, the term "Middle Ages" and the entire content of this article (including the layout of things to be written), are all solely focused on European history. In that light, I'm going to revert. Foxtrot 23:00, 11 June 2008 (EDT)
