HIST 262 - Early Medieval Worlds, 300-1000

(3)
FA. In the wake of the Roman Empire, three distinct political cultures emerged from the disintegration of the Roman Empire: the Byzantine Empire, the Islamic commonwealth, and Christian Western Europe. This course will study the emergence of these areas, their interactions, and how they incorporated their Hellenistic legacy. Special attention is given to rise of Islam, the Christianization of Western Europe, the role of monasticism in East and West, and the way each civilization integrated its Roman-Hellenistic heritage into its institutions and culture.
