At its height, the Roman Empire was the beacon of power and prosperity in the western world. But the once-powerful Rome, rotten to the core by the fifth century, lay open to barbarian warriors. As chaos replaced culture, Europe was beset by famine, plague, and a state of war. THE DARK AGES profiles those who battled to shape the future, from the warlords to those who tended the flames of justice, knowledge, and innovation.

Comments about PBS The Dark Ages DVD:

I watched this movie twice in a row and enjoyed it thoroughly both times. It is packed with important and interesting events that occurred during this tumultuous period. The reenactments are fabulous (we watch Alaric and the Visigoths sack Rome; we witness the spread of the Plague throughout Europe; we see the rise of the Catholic church and the king Charlemagne. We also see the strange Flagellants running around through town and countryside, whipping themselves bloody and achieving a sort of rock-star status.) Christianity is portrayed as both uplifting for the downtrodden and at times a merciless vehicle for torture and death during trials and the Crusades. It's all here! Very likely the most interesting history movie I've ever seen.
