You mean the one that squelched Greek science (which had to be
preserved by the Persians) and brought us the Dark Ages? Or do you
refer the post-enlightenment civilization that burgeoned when the
Roman Church lost it's grip.



You should read Kepler, Copernicus, Galileo, Bacon, Newton, Descartes, Ockham and others authors from that time.

Dark Ages is just a myth. From Wikipedia

"However, many modern scholars who study the era tend to avoid the term altogether for its negative connotations, finding it misleading and inaccurate for any part of the Middle Ages."


You should read Anaxagoras and Eratosthenes and Democritus and Aristarchus to see how much further science might have been advanced if not for the Church's emphasis on faith and superstition as a means to political power.
