Learning objectives
The course provides the general lines of the history of Christianity, focusing primarily on the medieval centuries, and the necessary tools to understand the main aspects and developments of Latin Christianity.
Expected learning outcomes
The course aims to provide the guidelines of the history of Christianity through some thematic elements (monasticism, ecclesiastical institutions, expansion of Christianity through the crusades) to focus on religious history in the Middle Ages (the Papacy, beggars, sanctity and hagiography, heresy and inquisition) and on the protagonists of the main events of the history of Christianity through the use of sources and international historical debate. These skills will be acquired through a direct and continuous meeting with the instructor in the classroom. The discussion around the proposed sources will be an essential moment of critical reflection and methodological learning. Participation in meetings and seminars organized within the Department of Historical Studies will also be of great importance. Students opting not to attend the lessons will be able to make use of the educational tools provided by the instructor on Ariel, deepen their knowledge of main topics through special readings with the agreement with the instructor, and of course contact the instructor either by e-mail and during office hours.
