"When we think about the middle Ages, we usually think about the fall of the Roman Empire and
the victory of the barbarians [...] However, things were not really like that, since the Roman
Empire, in reality, did not fall. It was maintained during the middle Ages. Neither Europe nor
America would be as they are today if the Roman Empire had not continued to exist a thousand
years after its supposed fall.
When we say that the Roman Empire fell, what we mean is that the Germanic tribes invaded their
western provinces and destroyed their civilization. However, the eastern half of the Roman Empire
remained intact, and for centuries, it occupied the extreme southeast of Europe and the
contiguous lands in Asia. This portion of the Roman Empire continued to be rich and powerful
during the centuries when Western Europe was weakened and divided [...] The Empire, thanks to
its might, contained the increasing forces of the Eastern invaders for a thousand years; and
Western Europe, protected by this barrier of military force, could develop in peace until its culture
formed a civilization specifically its own. The Empire of the Southeast transmitted to the West
both Roman law and Greek wisdom. He bequeathed art, architecture and customs; gave the West
the notion of absolute monarchy and religion to Eastern Europe. "
