Medieval History

From HBO’s Game of Thrones and the History Channel adventure series Vikings to the recent discovery of Richard III’s skeleton images of our medieval past are experiencing something of a media ‘renaissance’. Are you interested in Charlemagne, the Father of Europe or chivalric knights? In the Inquisition or the Crusades? In peasant rebellions or the development of parliaments? In Chaucer or Giotto? This course offers a wide-ranging look at historical events and debates from Western Europe 500-1450. The themes of Power, Piety, People & Performance will be examined through four geographical and conceptual areas: Empires, Royal & Ideological States and European Movements.
