Crossroads of History II

August 10-13, 2023

The Great Middle Ages

A time of warrior knights and mendicant Saints; of massive stone castles and soaring cathedral vaults. A world in which a common tongue united the French, English, Spanish and Italian. The birth of the University, the foundation of Science, the advancement of Music, the development of Western Civilization
