Pretty much the entire Fourteenth and Fifteenth Centuries, though in southern Europe this overlaps with TheRenaissance. This is the period where chivalry is dying, and [[Creator/NiccoloMachiavelli Macchiavellian]] nobles are killing off kings, queens, peasants, and each other with gusto (especially if they happen to be [[BigScrewedUpFamily relatives]]), with recurrences of ThePlague generally finishing off any survivors. This is the age of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danse_macabre Dance of Death,]] UsefulNotes/TheHundredYearsWar, the UsefulNotes/WarsOfTheRoses, UsefulNotes/TheSpanishInquisition, the early [[BurnTheWitch witchcraft trials]], and the vivid paintings of Creator/HieronymusBosch. It just got as dark and edgy as DarkAgeEurope again. Still, a common feature of fictions will be an idealistic character who looks forward to a day when society has left all this mediaeval darkness behind. [[WideEyedIdealist (This character often is killed.)]] We can blame most of these attitudes on the Renaissance, and even more on the (so called) {{UsefulNotes/TheEnlightenment Enlightenment}} when the whole 'people who came before us were really stupid' thing really started up.

* JokerJury / TrialOfTheMysticalJury: Both UsefulNotes/TheSpanishInquisition and the Vehmgericht vacillate between these two tropes.

Added DiffLines:

* The frame story of ''Literature/TheDecameron'' is set during the Plague, and was written during this period, so it is very much of this era. However, the stories the ''brigata'' tells are uniformly set before the Plague, although they vary wildly in time period (most seem to be set in TheHighMiddleAges, but there are some stories set in ancient Rome or Greece, as well.)
