did you mean 14th century?

Well, what about Giordano Bruno then?

Proposes heliocentrism, burned to death. They also did burn books that were "against the teachings of the bible" so who knows what they burned there.

And theres probably a whole lot of people who were burned we dont know much about. The dark ages are not a myth. Maybe they arent as bad as that graph makes it to be, but it certainly existed.

Of course, the church of today wants to downplay its part because its bad PR. But there was a whole lot of burning those days.

Yeah, technology. They got some saddle stirrups! But seriously, what kind of stuff was invented? Im actually curious

Yeah, the knowledge was preserved (thank god, and thank you monks), but it was a period of technological and cultural stagnation, hence the Dark Ages moniker.

also, the church backed this roman doctor, galen, because they liked how his ideas about human anatomy supported the idea of creation, and since galen (the arrogant cunt) claimed he knew everything there was to know about medicine and surgery, the church supported him and refused to allow other doctors to do their own research nd taught them all of galens ideas, some of which were very wrong. in this way, no progress was made in medicine between the roman era and the fucking renaissance.

preservation of knowledge =/= technological advancement
Yes, there were a lot of advancement in metallurgy, engineering, navigation and the like., mainly from people who found out by trial and error. But there were no fundamental science, no paradigm shifts, because the church prosecuted anyone who would oppose the bible (i.e, Galileo and a lot of people who died on the stake).

Vassal-ism was a huge step back, and a lot of technology was lost with the fall of the roman empire, and it took a long time to recover, mostly because of the church.

The whole idea of the church repressing science is mostly a myth. It only really happened in the whole geocentrism debate, which had more to do with the Reformation than anything. And evolution. But other than that they mostly didn't interfere with science, and encouraged learning greatly.

Galileo may have been an amazing astronomer, but history shows that he sucked when it came to people skill. Before he published his work he was invited to speak with the pope about his theories. The pope was still a believer in the geocentric model but he was fascinated by the theories that Galileo had, and asked him to publish a book comparing and contrasting the two points of view. Unfortunately for scientific advancement, Galileo presented the opposing viewpoint using a poorly disguised parody of the pope named "Simplus." So naturally insulting the most powerful man in the western world, who up until then was supportive, would have consequences. Luckily his daughter was a highly ranked nun who was able to stop the punishment from being worse. But really?

TLR try opening a history book
also, look up the 12th century Archbishop of Canteburry during the Black death. Shame he died, he must have been one of the most genius scientific minds of the period.
