EHIS 203 The Early Middle Ages
A survey of the transition from classical to medieval civilization from the third to the ninth centuries. The course will pay special attention to the legacy of Rome on the religious, political, and cultural institutions of the Medieval West and will also examine the impact of the Viking invasions and Christian conversion of Europe. The Carolingian Renaissance and the rise of Islam will also be closely examined for their impact on the intellectual development of Western Europe and the ensuing conflict of the Crusades. Offered irregularly. (LA)
