|Course Cluster: Christianity Studies|
This course focuses on the political, cultural, and social development of Europe from the fall of the Roman empire until the eve of the Reformation. This introductory course includes a sweeping look at one thousand years of tumult, compromise, and development and will address some very complex issues in European history. Topics include state formation in the sub-Roman world, economic expansion during the Commercial Revolution of 1000-1300, the political and cultural transitions of the 13th and 14th centuries and the emergence of the early modern world. Each class will be comprised of lecture and discussion. Discussion will be based on primary sources (print and online) and the textbook.
