  7. 7.  The Aeneid was the central Latin literary text of the Middle Age. • It shows modern day historians that writing and literature was valued to the people.  Considering there were no spaces between the words, this artifact really proves that writing has come a long way!  We can mass print books today instead of having to copy them by hand.
