In accordance with the Hegel philosophy the study of general history is exposed to the so-called general phenomenona and general events, which are typical for larger areas and world civilizations. Medieval general history is limited to the territory of Europe; that is the study of the emergence and development of modern European civilization. In this context the emphasis in the medieval period is above all on West, Middle and South Europe, the territory of Catholic Church. This of course does not exclude the relatively detailed depiction with data, theses and literature of individual important events and processes, such as the Barbarian attacks at the end of Antiquity, migration of peoples, the beginning of barbarian states, the following states of the Merovingian, Carolingian, Ottonian, Capetian, Anglo-Normans, Byzantine Empire, papacy, economic flows, trade, the Crusades, Investiture Contest, medieval Poland, Bulgaria and Russia, Islam and Arabs, the mindset and theology, late medieval culture (Dante).
