In this video Heimler explains the developments in Europe from 1200 to 1450. This content aligns with the AP World History curriculum Unit 1 Topic 6.
European society during this period was socially & politically defined by the concept of feudalism. Feudalism: Series of mutual obligations between the different classes in European society.
Additionally, more powerful monarchs arose during this time & that reality shifted political power away from regional lords and into the hands of more centralized kingdoms. However, the Roman Catholic Church regained its power and influence during a series of wars called the Crusades.
Sometimes this period is called the Dark Ages because European trade & intellectual life declined. This trend was reversed in the High Middle Ages & the advent of the Renaissance, which gave the world some of its most enduring art & literature.
