The Middle Ages have a special place in the history of Europe. During this period, a Christian community was formed in Europe. Established in the Middle Ages, national states and institutions promoted the further development of Western civilization. Despite its many-sidedness, spirituality and culture of the Middle Ages were built around a single vector.

This book is no exception. It is a reasonably short book - only some 250 pages, and originally published in 1953.

Middle Ages Society can be studied under three sub-groups, the Early Middle Ages, High Middle Ages, and Late Middle Ages. After the collapse of Roman Empire, the society of The Middle Ages continued to suffer barbarian invasions as they occupied the remains of Roman Empire to start their own kingdoms. Other significant societal changes were the rise of Islamic Empire and the spread of Christianity. An emergence of feudalistic society was eminent in The Middle Ages and the major reason behind this was the necessity of security for the society. The society was divided basically in two classes, the upper classes and the peasants or serfs.

Ironically, since the Middle Ages, the advantageous position of students in society as part of the social elite undoubtedly enforced their critical approach.

The Early Middle Ages are also sometimes referred to as Late Antiquity. This time period is usually viewed as beginning in the third century and stretching to the seventh century, and sometimes as late as the eighth. Some scholars see Late Antiquity as distinct and separate from both the Ancient world and the Medieval one; others see it as a bridge between the two where significant factors from both eras overlap. It is sometimes referred to as the "flowering" of medieval society, thanks to an intellectual renaissance in the 12th century, such notable philosophers as Peter Abelard and Thomas Aquinas, and the establishment of such Universities as those in Paris, Oxford, and Bologna.
