The Making of Britain, 400-1763|
Spring 2010 not offered
|Course Cluster: Christianity Studies|
This course of lectures will focus on the emergence of Britain by examining a series of formative moments and crises that blended Britons into a political, religious, and ethnic community but also differentiated them from outsiders. The course is therefore as much about the cultural creation of the English and the British as it is about the political events and military crises that occurred. The course begins in the 5th century at the moment that the Romanized Celts in England and Scotland first felt the effects of the Germanic English invaders and concludes in the 18th century when England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland had been united under one Protestant monarch. It is a story guided by conquest, religion, and ethnicity.
