    For the first answer, I believe it was the early medieval times.

    Your text probably is the best source for these answers. However, this article gives a pretty complete history of the veneration of the Virgin Mary. It looks like Early Medieval may be the best answer to your rather vague question.

    Since most people were illiterate, Christian art was intended to teach them about their religion.
