The author defends the thesis according to which the Middle Ages time is an essential element in the creation of our modern cultural identity due to the fact that just this intermediate epoch prepares conditions that permit in Modern Times to absorb the legacy of Antiquity. It is stressed that only now, having liberated ourselves from the modernist attitude toward the Middle Ages, we start to understand their role in our cultural and intellectual development.
