070196 VO History of the Middle Ages, ca. 300 to ca. 1500 (2015W)

5.00 ECTS (2.00 SWS), SPL 7 - Geschichte

The course gives a problem-oriented survey over the period from around 400 to 1500 AD and the development of Europe in this time and tries to consider the most fundamental social, cultural and political aspects of the medieval world. The economy is in the main approached through the textbook. It is highly recommended to pair this lecture class with Buc's Guided Reading, or the very similar one taught by Magistra Alexandra Kaar.
