Syllabus
Prerequisites: General information about the history of Europe and the Mediterranean area in the ancient, medieval and modern age. Basic legal concepts. The course of lessons provides the essentials in both areas through in-depth documents included in the study materials.
Target skills and knowledge: Knowledge and understanding: The course of lessons aims at imparting adequate knowledge and methods about the origin and development of the Venetian government, law system and legal culture, as well as about the differences and similarities between the Venetian Republic and other medieval and modern institutions in Europe and the Mediterranean.
Applying knowledge and understanding: The teoretical knowledge acquired is applied to understand archival and bibliographical source materials, relevant to the topics of the course of lessons, in their medieval and modern context.
Making judgements: The comparison between the medieval and modern legal experiences in Venice, Europe and the Mediterranean on one side, and legal systems today, allows for an evaluation in historical perspective of the strenghts and weaknesses implicit in government structures and legal systems. In particular, such a comparison outlines those solutions the results of which are not acceptable in the light of the basic legal principles and the protection of human rights generally accepted today.
Communication: The materials of study require competence in fluid use of English as well as of non-translatable Venetian terms.
The course of lessons includes contact with medieval Latin, which however is accompanied by translations. These linguistic tools aim at developing argumentative competences and the expression of personal evaluations about the topics of the course of lessons.
Lifelong learning skills: The course trains in legal-historical research methods and a critical approach toward medieval and modern as well as contemporary archival and bibliographical sources, in order to highlight their chronological place, their context and their broadly political aims.
Examination methods: Individual interview.
In addition to the sessions of exams fixed in the official calendar, it will be possible to undergo verifications of competence during the office days and hours. Those interested are invited to check on Moodle, in case unforeseen, occasional modifications be made to the calendar and/or hours of office.
The result of the verification is documented in a certificate delivered to the student; its validity does not expire.
The mark will be formalised during any of the following ordinary sessions of examinations. Therefore the students who underwent the verification must enlist and answer to the call.
The results of the verifications are formalised at the beginning of the session, before the interviews.
Assessment criteria: The student is evaluated for grasp of the topics touched upon in the course of lessons and study materials and their interrelations, as well as for method in approaching archival and bibliographical documents within the discipline.
Course unit contents: Introduction: topics to be treated, methods of approach, general information and conceptual elements; Before independence (antiquity-VIII century); Ducatus (742-1143); Comune (1143-1297); Republic (1297-1454); Dominante (1454-1797).
See Moodle for details.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Lessons in the classroom will introduce the discipline and explain the specifics of each phase in the historical development of the Venetian institutions and law system, together with in-depth presentations of digitized images, documents and historiography.
Each year one wide monographical topic is chosen and explored with direct recourse to archival, bibliographical and historiographical sources.
Additional notes about suggested reading: The study materials for a.a. 2014-15 (work in progress) will be available online at the page:
http://www.arielcaliban.org/paxtibimarce.htm
All students will study the chapters 1-5. In addition, each year one topic will be chosen, taking into account the preferences of the students, among the in-depth presentations posted on the same page.
