Medieval Europe is a significant part of history because it is a clear example of the human species facing hardships and learning from mistakes. It was a time that transformed thought, art, and human existence itself and is one of the reasons behind the state of the world today. In terms of history being told through art, the main art platforms in medieval Europe were frescoes and mosaics.
Between the fall of Rome and the 15th-century renaissance, the human population had faced a staggering amount of war, famine, oppression, and chaos. Without medieval times and the influence of Islam, people would have become stagnant and not have had such a movement to better themselves and society.
