“Beginnings and endings are arbitrary; they frame the story that the narrator wants to tell.”
Matthew Gabriele, The Bright Ages: A New History of Medieval Europe

“Scientists can measure the oxygen isotopes in dental enamel to determine where in the world long-dead people were born. From the Bronze Age through to the medieval period, we’re finding people buried in British graves who were born in Asia and Africa. That number peaked, unsurprisingly, during the Roman period, but never falls to zero throughout the Middle Ages.”
Matthew Gabriele, The Bright Ages: A New History of Medieval Europe

“Not only (supposedly) was he carried off to the gates of Hell by demons and only rescued by the apostle St. Bartholomew, Guthlac was threatened physically by non-Christian peoples, wild beasts, and duplicitous fellow monks.”
Matthew Gabriele, The Bright Ages: A New History of Medieval Europe
