Lists from other eras
In the 19th and early 20th centuries, some writers wrote their own lists with names such as Wonders of the Middle Ages, Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages, Seven Wonders of the Medieval Mind, and Architectural Wonders of the Middle Ages.

Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase and Fable refers to them as “later list[s]”, suggesting the lists were created after the Middle Ages.
