This Medieval History course is a true world history course, in which we will explore the links between the empires of India and Asia to the kingdoms of Europe. From Constantine’s adoption of Christianity through the schism between Rome and Constantinople, from the rise of Muhammad in the Arabian peninsula to the crowning of Charlemagne, from the sacred wars of India to the establishment of the Knights Templar and the rise of the Crusaders, this course will cover the fascinating and often violent story of kings, generals, and the peoples they ruled. Using Susan Wise Bauer’s The History of the Medieval World: From the Conversion of Constantine to the First Crusade as our base text,  students will explore this turbulent and often overlooked period in world history.

The class will be less concerned with memorizing dates and documents, and will instead focus on how we can relate to the history of this period through personalized stories and anecdotes, in order to best feel the courage, passion, and genius of this period’s leading figures.

This class seeks to foster greater familiarity with and appreciation for key events in medieval history, and how they in turn inspired future events with direct impact on our own lives.

 

NOTE: Registration deadline is August 15, 2020.

There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
