Dante's medieval world (1265-1321) was one of cultural innovation, religious revival and economic growth, as well as of political strife in many urban communities throughout Italy. This unit explores the political, social, artistic and spiritual worlds of Dante and his contemporaries, and in so doing will give coherency to this dynamic medieval period. Taught in Prato and its environs, the unit provides an opportunity to understand Dante's literary achievement and political activities through direct experience of Dante's Tuscany during the medieval period.
Upon successful completion of this unit students will be expected:
Written work: 90%
Oral presentation: 10%
Three 3-hour seminars per week for four weeks
Second-year sequence in Historical Studies or Religion and Theology
