The Middle Ages was certainly a time in which religion was important, however, and perhaps religion was the thing that defined the time.A couple examples of how religion effected legal systems illustrate this.Traditionally the Middle Ages in Europe covered the millennium from the 5th-15th centuries (often from 410 or 476, to 1453 or 1492).Some have excluded the less well-documented "Dark Ages" (a term since fallen largely into disuse) of the 5th-8th centuries.These included Arabic numerals to replace Roman numerals.The Middle Ages are often described as dirty, smelly, and superstitious.None of these is any more true of the Middle Ages than of other times, including the Renaissance.

Subdivisions widely accepted for the later period include High Middle Ages (11th-13th centuries), a period when medieval society is considered to have risen to its most developed form (though historians have also identified the first signs of its disintegration in the latter part of this period) and Late Middle Ages (14th-15th centuries), generally seen as a time of demographic and socio-economic crisis (though paradoxically also perhaps of rising living standards): adherents of a "long" medieval era in these terms view the 5th-10th centuries as the Early Middle Ages.At the same time, there was a thing called asylum, which meant that a person could not be removed from a monastery or church.In some places accused criminals had to be given time to repent, confess, and do penance before they were turned over to secular authorities.The second half of the Early Middle Ages, about 750 to 1000 AD, which I suggest be called the Carolingian Age (which I am applying to all western Europe), was a time of building great nations and empires in Western Europe, not only in France but in Germany and England.In Spain, it was a time of beginning the Reconquista.
