End of the Middle Ages Day

on May 29, 2017

May 29, 1453 is considered by many historians to be the end of the Middle Ages, and therefore the beginning of the Renaissance. On this day the city of Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Empire after being under siege for about two months. This eventually led to a revival of learning based on classic Greek sources which in turn started the Renaissance period of history.

P.S. Today is also Memorial Day. RIP fallen soldiers…
