45. Unless you want to say that Catholicism caused the fall of the Roman Empire

Your statement about it causing the Dark Ages is false.

Moreover, "Dark Ages" is a specifically British usage, referring to the period between the evacuation of the Roman army from Britain in 406 and the Norman Conquest in 1066. In France, the period up to about 1000 is designated Haut Moyen Âge, which is succeeded by the Bas Moyen Âge of 1000-1500. Most confusingly, the Germans apply Hochmittelalter to the 11th-13th centuries, but have it preceded by a Frühmittelalter of ca. 500-1000 and followed by a Spätmittelalter of 13th-15th centuries.
