NOTES: The Dark Ages (30:00) Barbarian kingdoms-- Franks, Burgundians, Visigoths, Lombards, Angels, and Saxons -- converted to Christianity. Saints became essential figures in adopting the new religion, and monasteries protected and nurtured ancient traditions of learning. Images of judgment, scenes from the lives of the saints, and reliquaries provide important information about the tenor of the times. The Age of Charlemagne (30:00) The invention of the horseshoe, the crank, the grindstone, and the heavy-wheeled plow led to increased food production and shifted economic power to northern Europe. Charlemagne was helped by the use of newfangled stirrups and increased grain supplies. His reign led to flourishing monasteries and masterpieces of Carolingian art.
