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.

Cosa pensano gli ascoltatori di The Middle Ages 101: Medieval History and Life
- Tom McGowan
Chris Bellitto is a great history professor, and I believe this series represents his true passion. Well-organized, insightful and lively, I found his lectures a join to listen to. I respectively disagree with another review. This course was produced by NYKM, rebranded Learn25. But Learn25 produces titles on a variety of subject areas from professors of many backgrounds. I see top titles by top experts in psychology, history, etc. It does have many courses on religious topics and Prof. Bellitto is Roman Catholic, but I found this course well-balanced, scholarly and engaging.

Religion Lecture disguised as Medieval History
I buy a lot of academic courses from The Teaching Company and the Modern Scholar. I thought this was a new title from Modern Scholar when I bought it. I didn't notice for awhile that it's from an outfit called, Now You Know. When I went to their website to see what else they offer, I discovered they are basically a Bible College look at academia. It was a slant I found limited and occasionally offensive. I wouldn't buy from them intentionally. I'm not their intended audience. Now I know.
