Summary
Medieval science wasn't nonsense: it could conceive of a spherical Earth, for example. But the medieval scholar discerned both natural and supernatural forces at work in the cosmos, reading an eclipse as a sign from God as well as the result of planetary movement, and populating even the most rigorous maps of the era with sea monsters. This program explores that fascinating conceptual dichotomy and the ways in which it evolved as the Dark Ages unfolded. Viewers discover how classical learning-derived from Arabic documents stored in Spanish libraries-lived on, almost literally, in the hands of Christian monks, while the implications of the voyages of Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus, and other explorers are also vital topics
