ERC 103 GS (Global Seminar): ‘Paris is Worth a Mass:’ Christianity in Paris from Geneviève to Louis XIV (ca. 500 to 1700) Professor Matthew T. Herbst, Director, MMW Program, Email: [email protected] University of California San Diego Summer Session 1 2008 in Paris, France Course Description : Dan Brown’s wildly popular novel, The Da Vinci Code , while equally wild with its use (and abuse) of historical evidence, nonetheless, set upon the trail of Paris’ important role in the history of western Christianity from Merovingian kings and bishops to medieval Templars and early modern reforming orders. This course takes up this same trail to exam Christianity in Paris from late antiquity to the early modern period (debunking some of Brown’s myths along the way). It begins in the late antique/early medieval period during the age of Saint Geneviève and Clovis, King of the Franks. We trace the city’s medieval legacy to the Capetian Dynasty when the city became a political and religious capital, producing such iconic Gothic monuments as St. Denis, burial site of French kings, Notre Dame, and King Louis IX’s stunning Sainte-Chapelle.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
