  • Overview

    This Group 1 module covers the history of Europe from c.1000 to 1500, covering areas on both sides of the Mediterranean. It covers problems of continuity and change in society, politics, religion and culture, and introduces students to debates about the impact of the rise of Islam, the centuries of the Crusades and the European economic 'take-off', the effects of the great plagues and revolts of the fourteenth century, and about the Renaissance, 'modernity', and the origins of European states. Students will have the opportunity to consider how a vast series of transformations formed European culture, and to reflect on general themes, such as the interaction of religious orthodoxy and dissent, shifting perceptions of gender, or the friction between imperialist drives and cultural coexistence.
