Examples of medieval in a Sentence

  1. Michael Bennet:

    This idea that he was going to build a medieval wall across the southern border of Texas, take it from the farmers and ranchers that were there, and have the Mexicans pay for it isn't true. That's why we're here.

  2. Donald Trump:

    One of the things I have is really good judgment, and I think I have really great temperament, it's a strong temperament, but you know when they chop heads off of Christians in the Middle East, and other people also. When they chop off heads, and when they treat people the way -- we're like Medieval times. Having a strong temperament is good.

  3. Cressida Williams:

    It is of the utmost significance to us to have here in our collections a copy of the core Christian text which was owned by one of the last monks of the medieval monastic community, the bible bears witness to the upheavals of the Reformation, a time which defined what the Cathedral is today, and will have a key role in telling visitors our story.

  4. Professor Edsger Dijkstra, at the ACN South Central Regional Conference, Austin, Texas, 16 to 18 Novemver 1984:

    The fathers of the field had been pretty confusing: John von Neumann speculated about computers and the human brain in analogies sufficiently wild to be worthy of a medieval thinker, and Alan Turing thought about criteria to settle the question of whether machines can think, a question of which we now know that it is about as relevant as the question of whether submarines can swim.

  5. Ed Sealover:

    We stand behind the Bud Light transparency campaign and have no plans to change the advertising. Brendan Whitworth, chief of U.S. sales for parent company Anheuser-Busch, said roughly 40 percent of consumers want some kind of additional transparency on products they consume, which is a key data point for the company. The epic joust is far from over. MillerCoors just unleashed a fresh assault of its own. We launched new ads from Miller Lite that are light hearted way to poke fun at the fact that Bud Light is living in fantasy world and in real world, more taste is what matters, says Adam Collins, vice president of communications for MillerCoors. The ads consist of medieval scenes with actors portraying thefamous Bud Light knightandprisoners, walking off the commercial set to crack open a Miller Lite. Beer book author and Denver Business Journal Reporter Ed Sealover, said beer sales have been suffering. At this point, when you continue to lose sales, you need to peck at your competition because youre not taking those sales away from craft breweries right now, he said. Youre going to have to take it away from people who compete in the same market as you.
