  • Overview

    Between 1250 and 1500 Christendom was afflicted by war, plague and religious dissent. These developments had a profound impact on the religious unities and certainties of earlier centuries. This course offers a thematic survey of religious, social and cultural developments in the later medieval west, as Europe emerged from Christendom. Lectures and tutorials focus on the role and impact of religion in later medieval society, on social structures (such as the significance if marriage and family) and on the culture of this vibrant yet troubled era.
