This survey only covers the early church and the period through the Dark Ages so it does not examine the work of medieval inquisitors or later church authorities. I hope to look at these areas at a later date but for the moment my conclusions are as follows: Indiscriminate destruction of ancient literature by institutional Christianity never occurred; There was no attempt to suppress pagan writing per se; On a few occasions, pagan tracts specifically targeted against Christianity were condemned but others have been preserved; Suppression of heretical Christian writing was widespread; Magical and esoteric works were treated in exactly the same way as they were under the pagan Emperors which was not very sympathetic; With some exceptions, respect for pagan learning was widespread among Christians; Survival of classical literature is almost entirely due to the efforts of Christian monks laboriously copying out texts by hand , cited: http://goldenspringsbc.com/library/the-life-of-john-duke-of-marlborough-prince-of-the-roman-empire-volume-2. The site and its documents are well organized and the breadth of materials is impressive. The Internet Medieval Sourcebook is organized as three main index pages, with a number of supplementary documents. There is an index of selected and excerpted texts for teaching purposes, a help page on use of the Sourcebook for research questions, a section devoted to secondary articles, texts on the history of law, copy-permitted maps and images, a guide to medieval-themed films and music, and more http://mullinsmobilenotary.com/freebooks/virgil-the-aeneid-landmarks-of-world-literature. In addition to housing one of the largest concentrations of Roman soldiers anywhere in the Empire’s provinces, Hadrian’s frontier system was home to an incredibly cosmopolitan array of civilians.

While there are no distinct “Renaissance” styles per se during this period, art by High Renaissance masters are all characterized by astounding technical skill.

Its glory was at its peak in 200 AD, and the entire empire spanned over an area of 2.5 million square miles. As much as the Romans are known for their vast empire and its governance, they will forever be remembered as inventors and establishers, inventors of a modern form of administration and establishers of a number of science and engineering practices which had been around, but were ushered in for daily use by them , source: http://sydneypropertyvaluations.com/?books/selections-from-the-roman-elegiac-poets-with-introduction-and-notes.

In the Irish Echtrae Airt meic Cuinn (or the "Adventure of Art Son of Conn"), the druids advised Conn Cétchathach, the high king of Ireland, to find and sacrifice a boy from sinless parents, named Ségda Sáerlabraid , e.g. http://puncom.com.au/ebooks/costume-in-roman-comedy-1909.
Some monks, such as the Benedictines, did care for the sick and saw this as a Christian duty, and devoted their lives to that. Some Christians did come into contact with eminent doctors. During the Crusades, many Christians travelled to the Middle East, and learnt about scientific medicine http://etkagency.com/library/early-ideals-of-righteousness-hebrew-greek-and-roman-1910.

By treating these ethical and political questions as interrelated, and then going on to depict both an ideal political regime (“Kallipolis”, the fine or beautiful city) in which they could be solved, and the imperfect regimes into which such an ideal regime will decay, the Republic lays out a novel and ambitious template for political philosophy: not only to interrogate the meaning of virtue and citizenship, but also to develop an ideal regime and an account of how and why such regimes may fail http://tonyespinoza.com/books/greek-lexicon-of-the-roman-and-byzantine-periods-from-b-c-146-to-a-d-1100-v-2.
