IX The Turkish Irruption
The entry of the Seljuk Turks into Western Asia in the second half of the eleventh century forms one of the great epochs of world history. It added a third nation, after the Arabs and Persians, to the dominant races of Islam; it prolonged the life of the moribund Cali phate for another two hundred years, it tore Asia Minor away from Christendom and opened the path to the later Ottoman invasion of Europe, it allowed the orthodox Muslims to crush the Ismailian heresy, and provoked in reprisal the murderous activities of the Assassins; it put an end to the political domination of the Arabs in the Near East, it spread the language and culture of Persia over a wide area from Anatolia to Northern India, and by posing a grave threat to the Christian Powers, it impelled the Latin West to undertake the remarkable counter-offensive of the Crusades. The Oxus was the traditional boundary between civilization and barbarism in Western Asia, between Iran and Turan, and Persian legend, versified in Firdawsi's great epic, the Shah-namah, told of the heroic battles of the Iranians against the Turanian king Afrasi- yab, who was at last hunted down and killed in Azerbaijan. When the Arabs crossed the Oxus after the fall of the Sassanids, they took over the defence of kan against the barbarian nomads and pushed them back beyond the Jaxartes. The Turkish tribes were in political disarray, and were never able to oppose a unified resistance to the Arabs, who carried their advance as far as the Talas river. For nearly three centuries Transoxiana, or as the Arabs called it, Ma Wara al-Nahr, 'that which is beyond the river', was a flourishing land, free from serious nomadic incursions, and cities like Samarkand and Bukhara rose to fame and wealth.

    Remarks About The Fall Of Rome
    Over the years a lot of ink has been spilled concerning this topic. It is an enormous one, with which a lot of very serious scholars have grappled, for centuries. As an amateur historian, I can only barely skim the surface of this topic. However, there are a number of things about it which I do know, for certain, and some of them run counter to what is often said about the fall of Roman Empire.
    Myths About The Fall of Rome
    First of all, the Roman Empire didn't actually fall until 1453, when Constantinople was taken by the Ottoman Turks (and later renamed Istanbul). The eastern part of Roman Empire actually endured for nearly a thousand years after the western portion was conquered by various tribes. In this form, it was known as the "Byzantine Empire," named for Byzantium, the original Greek town which the Roman Emperor Constantine rebuilt and was renamed for him. While the Byzantines were largely ethnic Greeks, they referred to themselves as "Romans," and for a long time, the official language of both the Byzantine government and church was Latin. Their Turk and Arab foes called them "Romans" as well. (This produced, briefly, a little confusion, when the Crusaders from western Europe showed up, who were sent by the Pope of Rome. But in due course they came to be known as "Franks" or "Celts" by the Byzantines, Turks and Arabs.) Another myth is that Rome fell due to "decadence," "debauchery," its "amoral" culture, or its persecution of Christians. It is simply baseless to compare Roman culture with ours, and decide its relative morality, then based on such a value judgement, say that Rome fell because it didn't meet a certain moral standard. Both of these explanations suggest that Rome was struck down by God — or some other supernatural force — and while you may believe it to be true, this can only be a matter of faith. Other, far more mundane and less supernatural explanations can be found for Rome's fall; we need not rely on value judgements such as this.

    The Languages of Europe
    The vast majority of languages spoken in Europe are from the Indo-European family of languages . Several "branches" of the IE family are found there, including the Italic (or Romance), Greek, Germanic, and Baltic. (Other branches of IE are found in Asia.) I have already covered the history of the English language
    Prehistoric Times
    If this sounds like a puzzling picture, well, you are right. Europe and the Mediterranean was then, as it is now, a hodge-podge of many tongues, including some unrelated to each other linguistically but which were spoken by neighboring peoples. This was the result of numerous mass migrations which took place following the end of the Ice Age. As the glaciers receded northward, various groups wandered into reclaimed lands, following the herds of animals on which they lived. As they moved, some overlapped each other, some groups welded themselves together while others split up, and so on. One could literally call the millenia following the Ice Age and leading up to classical times, a period of "social shuffling." Anthropologists and historical linguists are only just now beginning to puzzle out the travels of various groups — and even then there is much uncertainty and mystery. Civilization as we know it sprang up in the Near East, in fertile lands well suited to agriculture (the Nile valley, and the "Fertile Crescent," running from Palestine into what is now eastern Syria, and all the way down the valleys of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. Other areas remained the homes of nomadic peoples.

Medieval philosophers used it, as San Augustine. It was the dark stage included between the beginning of the things up to the modernity: tempum intermedium , as the Augustinians philosophers called it. Otón de Fressin stands out between them. The Middle Ages are like a civitas permixtas , an intermediate city between God's city and the city of the men. It is a city in tension. The first one that used the term since it is known in the present time was the bishop of Aleria, Bossi. In a text written to a deceased cardinal, in whom he exalts his virtues, outlines the times in which there lived the cardinal (medium aedium). The average times. In the century XVII other authors insist on the same concepts that Bossi . The black legend appears. The Middle Ages is conceived as an epoch of setback and lack of refinement. Rafael coins the term of Gothic art in the first third of the century XVI in a letter to the Pope León X It referred to a few artistic manifestations before him. He qualifies it as rude, Barbarian art opposed to the Roman art.

    Procopius: Secret History, extracts
    Procopius [c.490/510-c.560s] is the most important source for information about the reign of the emperor Justinian. He wrote a number of official histories, including the Buildings and On the Wars . He also left a "Secret History" [ Anecdota ] which was a massive attack on the character of Justinian and his wife Theodora. Parts are so vitriolic, not to say pornographic, that for some time translations from Greek were only available into Latin ["the decent obscurity of an ancient tongue"].
    on Justinian
    from Chapter VII
    I think this is as good a time as any to describe the personal appearance of the man. Now in physique he was neither tall nor short, but of average height; not thin, but moderately plump; his face was round, and not bad looking, for he had good color, even when he fasted for two days. To make a long description short, he much resembled Domitian, Vespasian's son.... Now such was Justinian in appearance; but his character was something I could not fully describe. For he was at once villainous and amenable; as people say colloquially, a moron. He was never truthful with anyone, but always guileful in what he said and did, yet easily hoodwinked by any who wanted to deceive him. His nature was an unnatural mixture of folly and wickedness. What in olden times a peripatetic philosopher said was also true of him, that opposite qualities combine in a man as in the mixing of colors. I will try to portray him, however, insofar as I can fathom his complexity.

    At the dawn of history the ancient Thracians : a group of tribes speaking an Indo-European language : extended as far west as the Adriatic Sea, but they were pushed eastward (c.1300 B.C. ) by the Illyrians, and in the 5th cent. B.C. they lost their land west of the Struma (StrimOn) River to Macedon. In the north, however, Thrace at that period still extended to the Danube. Unlike the Macedonians, the Thracians did not absorb Greek culture, and their tribes formed separate petty kingdoms. The Thracian Bronze Age was similar to that of Mycenaean Greece, and the Thracians had developed high forms of music and poetry, but their savage warfare led the Greeks to consider them barbarians. Many Greek colonies : e.g., Byzantium on the Hellespont and Tomi (modern Constanta) on the Black Sea : were founded in Thrace by c.600 B.C.
