comment Why was East Asia more religiously tolerant than Europe in medieval time?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it fails to demonstrate the premise that one society was more violent than another.

comment Why was the Hexamillion wall incapable of preventing invasion?
I don't think that walls are intended to "prevent" invasion; they're intended to deter invasion and change the ground of the conflict (literally), shifting the advantage in favor of the defender. Walls may delay invasion, but if the fundamental causes for the invasion don't change, the wall won't prevent it. Also note that the answer is quite likely in the wikipedia page: "Military use appears to have fallen off after the 7th century AD, . . ." The page goes on to explain that domestic structures were built into the wall. Walls don't stop invasions, militaries do.
