The Problem of Love in the 12th Century
HIST 371
Fall 2006
Section: 01  
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 twelfth century.
