|Subject Overview:|| |
The medieval past continues to resonate in our modern world. Romanticised images of courtly culture, heroic figures like Robin Hood, the bloody battles of the crusades still have cultural meaning today, while the legacy of the Middle Ages may also be found in our legal and political institutions, our religious structures and our language. This subject will introduce students to western European history from 1000-1500. Themes explored may include varieties of religious expression; the rise of literacy; the formation of a 'persecuting society'; gender roles; the world of learning; European contact with other cultures; political transformations; war and chivalry; medieval myth-making; the Inquisition.
