It's clear that middle ages is a term from the Renaissance. My question is:
What names did scholars use during the middle ages for their period?
Well, of course middle ages is a single name for a very heterogeneous period that covers aprox. 1000 years, so different periods of the middle-ages might have different names and of course, in the same period many names could have been used by different people. So every name is welcome and wanted.
edit: I know this is a broad question, but I don't think it's too broad. I don't want a comprehensive list, I'm just curious about any names you could remember :)
