PHI 198H - The turbulent and glorious Middle Ages


HIS 198H  

This interdisciplinary course, designed for the LI Honors Program, will introduce students to the study of medieval life though history and philosophy.  How did Europe with its different countries, languages, and cultures, emerge from the chaos of the late Roman Empire? Using readings from some of the foundational philosophers during this 1000 year period and a study of significant historical events as chronicled in primary sources, students will gain an understanding of and appreciation for the complexities of this period of Western history with reflective connections to our present world view.  

1 semester 3 credits.
