Saints and Sinners in Europe, 1215-1590
HIST 351
Spring 2007 not offered
Crosslisting: MDST 298

This research seminar will help students to research the dominant role of religious ideas and institutions in forming the self and society of Europeans in the later Middle Ages and 16th century. Much of the focus will be on the relationship between individual Christians and surrounding community and church. This will entail an examination of saints, mystics and philosophers on the one hand and those declared heretics or witches on the other. The relationship of state power to religious organization and religious change will also be discussed in a comparative perspective, considering England, Spain, Scotland, Germany and France.
