Syllabus
Prerequisites: General knowledge of most importants medieval features (Vth-XVth centuries).
Target skills and knowledge: Lessons will enable the students to understand preminent features of Middle Ages from Late Antiquity to XVth century. A large place will be given to critical discussion of principal historical problems, with specific attention to Italian Middle Ages in the context of the European Middle Ages.
Examination methods: Students are required to present themselves to a spoken examination, about lessons',books' and Moodle's contents.At the end of the first two parts ( for 6 CFU) students may partecipate to a written test.
Assessment criteria: Valuation shall be based on student knowledge of the more important features of Middle Ages history and their interrelations.
Course unit contents: Lessons are divided in three parts : the first will frame a short history of what former historian (XVIII-XX centuries) thought about the Middle Ages itself, the second, longer, will considerate the principal historical features of every period. The third part ( for 9 CFU students only) will concern Italian cities in the Lower Middle Ages.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Class lessons.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Other texts and primary sources will be loaded in Moodle. We suggest to study Albertoni-Lazzari capp. XV-XXVII first, because capp. I-XIV are general essays, best understood if general facts are already known.
