101. Europe: 800-1300
This course surveys medieval Europe from the decline of the Carolingian era, tracing the rise of
the papacy, as well as new ideas about spirituality and law. Topics covered include the Crusades,
the culture of knights, universities, and the developing inquisition. Not open to seniors without
permission of the instructor. No S/U option. (Humanities)

102. Europe: 1300-1700
This course examines the impact of the Black Death upon European society and the
development of the Renaissance and Reformation. What does it mean to have a Renaissance?
How did the Black Death change European society? What effects did these new intellectual and
religious ideas have on politics, society, and culture? How did ordinary people shape the
Reformation? We will consider these questions as we explore art, literature, and documents
from the period. Not open to seniors without permission of the instructor. (Humanities)
