Western Civilization: Ideas, Politics, and Society by Marvin PerryWestern civilization traces its roots back to Europe and the Mediterranean. It is linked to the Roman Empire and with Medieval Western Christendom which emerged from the Middle Ages to experience such transformative episodes as the Renaissance , the Reformation , the Enlightenment , the Industrial Revolution , scientific revolution , and the development of liberal democracy. The civilizations of Classical Greece and Ancient Rome are considered seminal periods in Western history; a few cultural contributions also emerged from the pagan peoples of pre-Christian Europe, such as the Celts and Germans, as well as some significant religious contributions derived from Judaism and Hellenistic Judaism stemming back to Second Temple Judea , Galilee , and the early Jewish diaspora ;    and some other Middle Eastern influences. By the 12th century, Western Europe was experiencing a flowering of art and learning , propelled by the construction of cathedrals, the establishment of medieval universities , and greater contact with the medieval Islamic world via Al-Andalus and Sicily , from where Arabic texts on science and philosophy were translated into Latin. Christian unity was shattered by the Reformation from the 16th century.
