  Lilies in the Dark Ages
From: "Planter Rik" planterrik at hotmail.com> on 2002.10.18 at 14:40:57(9565)
Calling the Middle Ages the "Dark Ages" is like calling an aroid a lily. I
think Mr. Schmid has posted what links are to be found, but, if you enter
the black hole of the "Dark Ages" and succeed in returning with useful or
anecdotal connections, by all means, share them.

To have it specified when "confusion set in," or when or whether it has
since been dispelled, will also be interesting. My impression is that
confusion sets in when academic institutions do a poor job of teaching
pre-renaissance history.
