NOTES: COMMON LIFE IN THE MIDDLE AGES (30:00) Famine, disease, and a short life expectancy were daily realities that shaped medieval beliefs and were reflected in art and religion. The painting The Land of Cockaigne depicts a medieval fantasy of plenty. CITIES AND CATHEDRALS OF THE MIDDLE AGES (30:00) As Europe's cities came back to life, the great churches embodied the material and spiritual ambitions of the age, mounting ever-higher spires, such as the flying buttress structures of Chartres, which dominated the countryside. Trade routes chart Europe's expanding commerce and its flourishing centers in Flanders, Ghent, and Bruges.
