    Scottish literature in the Middle Ages is literature written in Scotland, or by Scottish writers, between the departure of the Romans from Britain in the fifth century, until the establishment of the Renaissance in the late fifteenth century and early sixteenth century. It includes literature written in Brythonic, Scottish Gaelic, Scots, French and Latin. Medieval mystical, devotional, and visionary literature, hagiography/saints’ lives, and medieval women’s writing. Frank Hugus, Professor of German & Scandinavian Studies Old Icelandic language and literature, Scandinavian mythology. Albert Lloret, Associate Professor of Spanish and Catalan & Graduate Program Director.

      Today, the period in Europe from about the year through approximately CE is called the Middle Ages, or the medieval era (the word medieval comes from the Latin medium aevum, literally middle age).But of course people who lived at that time did not think of themselves as being in the middle of anything—they, like we, referred to their own time as “modern.”. The Renaissance may be considered in a general or a particular sense, as (1) the achievements of what is termed the modern spirit in opposition to the spirit which prevailed during the Middle Ages; or (2) the revival of classic, especially of Greek, learning and the recovery of ancient art in the departments of sculpture, painting, and architecture, lost for a thousand years in Western.
