|Course Cluster: Christianity Studies|
This introductory lecture course is the first of three that cover the history of Europe from the Middle Ages to the contemporary period. This course is a history of European politics, culture, and institutions from roughly 300 through 1520, moving from the disintegration of the Roman Empire to the disintegration of Catholic Europe. Within this chronological framework we shall focus on the creation of nations and government; the growth and crises of papal-dominated Christianity - its crusades and its philosophy; the rise and role of the nobility and the knight; masculinity and gender relations; the crises of the later Middle Ages, including the Black Death, heresy, and mysticism, all of which contributed to the beginnings of the Renaissance and the Reformation, developments that ended the medieval period.
