About This Item

Chantilly, Virginia: Teaching Compnay, 2008. DVD. Thirty-six 30-minute lectures on six Fine DVDs in the original case along with a Very Good 172-page paperback Course Guidebook. Disks show only slight signs of prior use; no scratches. Slight shelfwear to case. Guidebook has two pages of vocabulary written in the "notes" pages at the end, otherwise Fine. Not from a library.

This course of 36 lectures explores the five momentous centuries that link the classical and modern worlds and shows you how the fall of the Roman Empire gave rise to three great civilizations: Medieval Europe, the Byzantine Empire, and the Islamic Caliphate. It explores many features of the period between A.D. 253 and A.D. 750, including the development of these unique civilizations, their memorable political and religious leaders, and the fascinating experience of daily life in the late antique world.
