Class Details

The European world saw dramatic changes and the creation of new cultures and societies between the ancient and modern periods. This course will survey more than a millennium of history, beginning late in classical antiquity and concluding at the dawn of the modern era. We will concentrate both on developments within Europe, and on European encounters with Islam, the Byzantine East, and pagan cultures. With an approach that is both chronological and thematic, we will place the broader narrative of medieval history alongside special consideration of Europe’s neighbors, social organization, medieval women, religion and piety, and education. Lectures and class discussion will receive equal emphasis. We will conclude with a weeklong epilogue on the end of the Middle Ages.
