What Were Characteristics of the Early Middle Ages?

The characteristics of the early Middle Ages include a creation of a common Christian perspective, the negative yet energizing interaction between Islam and Christianity, the Byzantium region as a demonstrative space of East and West conflict and a fewer material options when compared to the prior Roman era. The Middle Ages are a period that has not been fully defined by historians, but is generally considered to have occurred between 300 and 1000 A.D.

The Middle Ages was a time when Justinian law was the model and civilization was transitioning from Roman ideals to modern ideals. In fact, the medieval period is often titled the "Middle Ages" because it is in the middle of these two ideals.
