Travel Talks: Medieval Art (500–1400)

In this lecture, Rick Steves describes how Europe pieces itself back together after Rome shatters into a thousand kingdoms in AD 500. We'll learn about the castles of the Dark Ages, the grandeur of Romanesque churches, the soaring arches and stained glass of the Gothic style, and the rise of cities and trade that would bring the classical world's "rebirth" in the Renaissance.
