    but the proposition that the so-called "Dark Ages" ( a term  fewer & fewer historians are inclined to use for those centuries) were caused by the substitution of belief for learning is a bit too simplistic  even for my simple mind.

      It wasn't the only reason given.  The term "Dark Ages" may have less support from historians, but it is one widely know by ordinary folks.  Plus it has a bad sound to it.

      That period could have whole books written about it (and has), but this was a mere blog diary, and I had to keep it brief.  Oro me ignoscere.
