HIST 1222 - Medieval History in Film & Literature


An introductory multimedia survey of medieval society and culture, especially but not exclusively European. The Middle Ages are commonly seen as primitive and barbaric, as pure and romantic, or as an infantile version of the modern world. This course invites students to test those generalizations against more critical views. Focus is on violence and religious life, two topics with a surprising amount of overlap between them. Along with reading primary sources, including warrior epics and saints’ lives, students analyze a variety of films ranging from famous to obscure, artistic to graphic. Whatever the medium, we are concerned with improving our critical and interpretative skills, and with better understanding the challenges and possibilities for engaging with cultures other than our own.
