I don't know “Europe was waking up”. It was as if Europe was waking up after a long sleep of the Middle Ages.

this is artistic language. it's a metaphor. it's saying that europe is waking up from sleep. in this context, it's probably talking about the enlightenment, when, supposedly, reason became a primary cultural force and helped europe dispel tradition and superstition.
