The Bright Ages: A New History of Medieval Europe is a historical perspective on the European Middle Ages, which lasted from the year 500 to 1500. It is written by Matthew Gabriele and David M. Perry, and was published by HarperCollins in 2021.

The book is divided into several chapters, which are titled based on light-related metaphors. The authors examine the key events and people of the Middle Ages (e.g. the fall of Rome, the Vikings, the Black Death etc.), using recent research to provide a balanced perspective on the period.


The book received praise from David Shribman of the Boston Globe, who praised it for offering an "imaginative and supremely inviting look at the Dark Ages", along with commenting that the content was full of "brilliant colors [...] along with [...] the moments of extreme darkness" and that the book was quite "brisk" with it summarizing "a thousand years in 336 pages".[1]
