Le Moyen Âge s’étend sur plus de mille ans. Les historiens des textes le font débuter en 476, à la fin du règne de Romulus Augustule, dernier empereur romain d'Occident, ou en 496, date du baptême de Clovis. Il se termine soit en 1453, avec la prise de Constantinople par les Turcs et la fin de l'Empire romain d'Orient, soit en 1492, date de l’accostage de Christophe Colomb sur le continent américain, ou encore à la mort de Louis XI en 1481.
