The Early Middle Ages (ppt)

Los comienzos de la Edad Media

476 AD, the last western Roman Emperor has just been removed from power. Barbarians have crossed over the Roman limes (=borders) and settled in the ancient Roman provinces. Most of them, but not all, were Germanic people and their rulers became the new kings of small Germanic Kingdoms.

A new Europe is arising, blending Germanic traditions with the Roman cultural legacy. All over Europe, Christendom becomes the actual link.

 This is a dark and confusing  period, but the Roman heritage has not disappeared: in the eastern Europe the Roman power still remains, we call it Byzantine Empire, in western Europe Charlemagne, a Frankish king, is crowned by Pope as the new Roman Western Emperor.

Let´s review several topics related to these Early Middle Ages Empires.
