All this is a clue to the Middle Age's attitude toward history. They merged time and space indisciminately. They mingled fact and legend, and being preoccupied with eternity, they "took" sameness and continuity as more real that development and chance -hence, no history in the modern sense.
J. Barzun From Dawn to Decadence, 47
