H ISTORY 140/141 * F ALL 2007 C AROL S YMES Tuesday, 16 October 2007 Lost and Found in Translation: Pagans and Christians in Northern Europe K EY Q UESTIONS A DDRESSED IN L ECTURE Who were the peoples of northern Europe, and what were their forms of power, their perspectives? How did the values of the new Roman Christianity spread northward? What was lost – and found – in the translation of values from one culture to another? How did Christianity change the peoples of the North – and how was it changed? A DDITIONAL SOURCE CITED IN L ECTURE : Pope Gregory I “the Great” urges Roman missionaries to accommodate pagan religious practices, as reported by Bede in his Histtory of the English Church and People : If you find customs . . . elsewhere that may be acceptable to God, I wish you to make a careful selection of them, and teach the Church of the English, which is still young in the faith, whatever you have been able to learn in various places. [T]he temples of the idols among the people should on no account be destroyed.

    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.
