The Medieval City as Cultural Vector
HIST 399
Spring 2007 not offered
Crosslisting: MDST 299

This seminar will engage in research into the development of the cultural role of the medieval city. We shall examine the city as a medium for ideas, practices and institutions from the 11th century. Special attention will be paid to four revolutionary institutions: the cathedral complex, the university, the friary, and the capital city. The role of the city in disturbing the status quo as well as cultivating it will emerge from an examination of its religious functions as pilgrimage, preaching, and penitential center, but also as a center for heretical ideas and practices, including the Reformation.
