What, and how, did people think in medieval Europe? What was their world view, how did they live, and what did they believe? This is a great primer for anyone who wants to start to understand the middle ages.

When you hear the word 'medieval', do you think of torture devices, inquisitions, the plague, and a cultural vacuum? Turns out, the 'Dark Ages' or 'Middle Ages' weren't so backwards after all. This brilliant video (hosted by John Green) will take you through some of the misconceptions about the medieval era and (hopefully) will excite you about discovering the rich literary, scientific, and musical traditions of this period in history.
