The Medieval Church: A Brief History (ISBN: 0582494672) Course Description : This course will trace the development of Christianity from its origins in Judaism and the religious thought of the ancient Near East through its ‘conquest’ of the Roman Empire and its spread into the Medieval West up to its crises in the Late Middle Ages (ca. 1415) and the dawning of pre-reformation thought. Using primary source materials and pertinent images (Christian iconography), we will examine: the establishment of the Christian religious texts and a Christian theology and dogma; the rise of the ‘institutional’ Church and its implications; the position of women in the church; and the emergence and manifestation through the centuries of various and competing modes of Christian spirituality. In addition to examinations and active participation in class discussions, students will be required to write analytical papers based on primary and secondary source-readings. Please Note: Students taking teacher preparation classes may substitute History 119 for other European classes on the list. This class aligns with state standards for middle school teachers and secondary teachers who want to incorporate religious and social movements and their respective literatures into their middle school and high school history classes.
