The period from 1300-1450 has been described as a ‘calamitous’ one in European history: it saw the deaths of 25 million people from plague. the ravages of the 100 Years War between France and England. Schism in the Church. the heresy of the Cathars. the demise of the Templars. rebellion from peasants in England and wool workers in Italy. and the persecution and expulsion of millions of Jews. Despite these calamities, or perhaps because of them, the period was also one of extraordinary cultural innovation and social transformation. Through detailed case studies, students will be guided through one of the most turbulent and fascinating periods of European history.
