The Middle Ages was a remarkable time of human innovation, social experimentation, and religious change. That this is the case becomes blindingly evident when we engage the period through the lens of some of its most brilliant thinkers: the "great minds" of the Middle Ages. These individuals both responded to and influenced the world around them, in many cases altering social structures, educational practices, and religious dogma and making significant contributions to Fields as diverse as art, literature, medicine, science, and banking.
