HS 305 - The Later Middle Ages

(3.00 cr.)

Follows the history of Europe, Byzantium, and the Middle East from the end of the first millennium A.D. until c. 1500. From what some call "the Dark Ages" arose a more advanced Western world, one which began to develop in new and progressive ways. Despite the continual fighting between Islamic and Christian forces, first in the Middle East and then in southeastern Europe, kingdoms and principalities flourished under the leadership of strong nobles; farms brought forth more grain and other produce; towns grew and gave birth to a middle class; the population was enlarged by a high birth rate and the lack of natural hindrances; and universities were founded and education began to reach all classes. At the same time, a strong Catholic Church dominated all of these institutions, while moving steadily toward the Reformation.

Prerequisite: One HS 100-level course.
Sessions Typically Offered: Fall/Spring
