Goths, Barbarians, and the Fall of Rome - ROBERT SEPEHR

The Goths were a Germanic people that played an important role in the fall of Rome through the long series of Gothic Wars and in the emergence of Medieval Europe. They dominated a vast area, which at its peak possibly extended all the way from the Danube to the Don, and from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea. They spoke the Gothic language, one of the extinct East Germanic languages. The Visi-goths were the western branches of the Germanic tribes referred to collectively as the Goths, and Alaric was the first King of the Visigoths, best known for his sack of Rome in 410. Notre-Dame de Paris ("Our Lady of Paris") is consecrated to the Virgin Mary and considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture. It was recently burned in a fire.
