  1. The Dark Ages is a term often used synonymously with the Middle Ages. It refers to the period of time between the fall of the Roman Empire and the beginning of the Italian Renaissance and the Age of Discovery. Many textbooks list the Dark Ages as extending from 500-1500 AD, although it should be noted these are approximations.

    The term 'Dark Ages' was coined by an Italian scholar named Francesco Petrarch. Petrarch, who lived from 1304 to 1374, used this label to describe what he perceived as a lack of quality in the Latin literature of his day. Other thinkers came along and expanded this designation to include not only literature, but also culture in general. The term thus evolved as a designation for the supposed lack of culture and advancement in Europe during the medieval period.

    The term generally has a negative connotation. Debate continues to rage among historians over whether the Middle Ages were, indeed, dark or not. Increasingly, many scholars are questioning whether the term Dark Ages is an accurate description or not

  2. The Dark age is a term for the Early Middle Ages or Middle Ages in the area of the Roman Empire in Europe, after its fall in the fifth century, characterising it as marked by economic, intellectual and culture decline. The idea of a Dark age originated with the Tuscan scholar Petrarch in the 1330s. Writing of the past, he said: "Admist the errors there shone forth men of genius; no less keen were their eyes, although they were surrounded by darkness and dense gloom. Christian writers , including Petrarch himself , had long used traditional metaphors of 'light versus darkness' to describe 'good versus evil'. Petrarch was the first to give the metaphor secular meaning by reversing its application. He now saw classical antiquity, so long considered a 'dark' age for its lack of Christianity, in the 'light' of its cultural achievements, while Petrarch's own time, allegedly lacking such cultural achievements, was seen as the age of darkness.

    The Dark Ages were a difficult time in which to live: famine and disease were common. The Black Death Bubonic Plague devastated Europe in the late 1340s and early 1350s, killing an estimated 100 to 200 million people. The Dark Ages have often been described as a backwards time in human history. The Dark Ages came to a close around 1500 AD, as the Italian Renaissance and the Age of Discovery dawned.

  8. The name Dark Age gets it's name or derived the name Dark Age from the Latin saeculum obscurum,which was originally applied by Caesar Baronius in 1602 when he referred to a tumultuous period in the 10th and 11th centuries.This concept thus came to characterize the entire Middle Ages as a time of intellectual darkness in Europe between the fall of Rome and the Renaissance. This became especially popular during the 18th-century Age of Enlightenment.
    The term Dark ages simply refer or to be better known as the Early middle ages or the Roman period of it's fall in the fifth century, characterizing it as marked by economic, intellectual and cultural decline.
    It employs traditional light-versus Dark imagery to contrast the era's darkness with earlier and later periods of light.
    Thus the name Dark Age derived it's name from the latin saeculum obscurum which was originally derived by caesar Baronius but the concept was coined by the italian Tuscan scholar Petrach as the Dark Age or the early middle ages.

  12. The dark ages refers to a period of approximately 6th Century. That is largely lost to recorded history which is following the fall of Rome in 476CE.
    The dark Ages is thought to have covered the era between the 4th Century when Rome fell to the beginning of the 11th Century when the landscape of the primary countries of modern-day Europe began to take shape in terms of the dark Ages most historians agree that the label is misnomer.
    The term Dark Ages was coined by an Italian scholar named Francesco Petrarca. He believed the literature and the innovation of this period were stunted when compared to the Roman Empire. Perceiving the era to be void of the culture and progressiveness that existed in Western Europe before the Roman Empire lost control of the Continent.
    The Dark Ages were a difficult time in which to live: famine and disease were common. The Black Death Bubonic Plague devastated Europe in the late 1340s and early 1350s, killing an estimated 100 to 200 million people. Warfare was also a part of everyday life. The Europeans and the Muslims of the Arab world fought numerous conflicts. These conflicts, called the Crusades, began in 1095 and ended in 1291. The Dark Ages have often been described as a backwards time in human history. The Dark Ages came to a close around
    The fall of Rome and the world after for about 100 years before the fall of Rome. The city was in steep decline infighting petty ambitions and greed were common place within it's leadership. This poor leadership and inefficient govering would lead to the inevitable loss of control of the conquered territories within the empire.
    In 476 CE ll. A weakened Rome fell to the Germanic warlord to weaker Oda Wacker killed the father of child Emperor Romulus Augustus. It took control of the rest of his military and offered the young Emperor. The option of the retirement the emperor wisely accepted and fled into exile for the rest of his life.

  13. The name dark age is derived from the Latin saeculum obsucuram which was originally applied by Caeser Baronius in 1920 when he referred to a tumultuous period in 10th and 11th century. This made the entire Middle ages characterize when the intellectual darkness in Europe between the fall of Rome and the Renaissance. This eventually became popular during the 18th century Age of Enlightenment.
    The Dark ages was coined by an Italian scholar Francisco Petrach. Who regarded the post-Roman as 'dark' compared to 'light' of classical antiquity.
    This accomplishment of the dark ear came to understood better during 19th and 20th centuries, scholar began restricting the 'dark ages' appeliatio to Early Middle Ages. And now scholar also reject using this name in these periods.

  14. The "Dark Ages" is a term for the Early Middle Ages or Middle Ages in the area of the Roman Empire in Europe, after its fall in the fifth century, characterizing it as marked by economic, intellectual and cultural decline.


    Petrarch, who conceived the idea of a European "Dark Age". From Cycle of Famous Men and Women, Andrea di Bartolo di Bargilla, c. 1450
    The concept of a "Dark Age" originated in the 1330s with the Italian scholar Petrarch, who regarded the post-Roman centuries as "dark" compared to the "light" of classical antiquity.[1][2] The term employs traditional light-versus-darkness imagery to contrast the era's "darkness" (lack of records) with earlier and later periods of "light" (abundance of records).[1] The phrase "Dark Age" itself derives from the Latin saeculum obscurum, originally applied by Caesar Baronius in 1602 when he referred to a tumultuous period in the 10th and 11th centuries.[3][4] The concept thus came to characterize the entire Middle Ages as a time of intellectual darkness in Europe between the fall of Rome and the Renaissance. This became especially popular during the 18th-century Age of Enlightenment.[1]

    As the accomplishments of the era came to be better understood in the 19th and 20th centuries, scholars began restricting the "Dark Ages" appellation to the Early Middle Ages (c. 5th–10th century),[1][5][6] and now scholars also reject its usage in this period.[7] The majority of modern scholars avoid the term altogether owing to its negative connotations, finding it misleading and inaccurate.[8][9][10] Petrarch's pejorative meaning remains in use,[11][12][13] typically in popular culture which often mischaracterises the Middle Ages as a time of my webviolence and backwardnes

  16. History is full of people talking about how they living in a 'dark time or in 'dark age'- it is an metaphor to explain that you are living in good tome or bad times. It would be used again by the 14th century Italian poet Petrarch, who was great admirer of ancient Romans and Greeks. He would compare those times with his own, and found that he was not very happy with the present-day situation. In one his works he writes "My fate is to live among varied and confusing storms. But for you perhaps, if as I hope and wish you will live long after me, there will follow a better age. This sleep of forgetfulness will not last for ever. When the darkness has been dispersed, our descendants can come again in the former pure radiance".

Petrarch, who lived from 1304 to 1374, used this label to describe what he perceived as a lack of quality in the Latin literature, but also culture in general.
