The Problem of Love in the 12th Century
HIST 371
Fall 2008 not offered
Crosslisting: MDST 371

This course will consider the historiographic notion of a 12th-century Renaissance through documentation on the cult of love and friendship. Topics to be addressed are human love for God, God's love for humanity, the possibility of achieving unselfish love, and the various words by which these feelings may be called. Through close readings of a number of primary sources that discuss affective relationships, our goal will be to come up with our own estimation of the changes wrought in the 12th century.
