HIS 301 Medieval Civilization



The thousand-year period from approximately 450 to 1450, known as the Middle Ages, was a formative period in the development of much of Europe and the Middle East, and brought western civilization from antiquity to the brink of modernity. This course will provide an examination of the history and culture of the Middle Ages, and will explore traditional themes in medieval history, such as the rise of Christianity and the Church, growth and evolution of the feudal and manorial systems, state building, and late medieval crises and conflicts, as well as the social and cultural experiences of men and women from all walks of life.
