The History of Civilization, Vol. 3 free pdf Excerpt from The History of Civilization, Vol. 3: From the Fall of the Roman Empire to the French Revolution Neither one nor the other of these means sufficed. Those wars, those adventures, which in the present day, at a distance of seven or eight centuries, appear to us so multiplied, so continual, were probably, in the eyes of the men of the eleventh century, rare, soon terminated, mere transitory incidents. The days of the year seem very numerous and long to him who has nothing to do, no necessary, regular, or permanent occupation. The family, in its proper and natural limits, reduced to the wife and children, did not suffice to fill them up. Men with manners so rude, with a mind so little developed, soon exhausted the resources which they found in them. To fertilize, so to speak, the sensible nature of man, and make it give rise to a thousand means of occupation and interest, is the result of a very advanced civilization. This moral abundance is unknown in rising societies- its sentiments are strong, but abrupt, and brief, as it were- the influence which they exercise over life is greater than the place which they ho Min it. Domestic relations, as well as external adventures, assuredly left a great void to fill up in the time and soul of the possessors of fiefs of the eleventh century. Men must have sought, in fact did seek, to fill it up, to animate, to people the castle, to draw thither the social movement which it wanted- and they found the means. You will recollect the life which, before the invasion, the German warriors led around their chief, that life of banquets, of games, of festivals, and which was always passed in common. "Feasts," says Tacitus, "banquets ill prepared but abundant, are given them instead of pay... no one is ashamed to pass the day or night in drinking... They most frequently treat at the banquets, of enemies to be reconciled, alliances to be formed, chiefs to be chosen, of peace and of war." After the invasion and the territorial establishment, this agglomeration of warriors, this life in common, (as I have already had occasion to observe, ) did not immediately cease- many companions still continued to live around their chief, upon his domains, and in his house.
