It is the purpose of this course to introduce students to a number of historical concepts and transformations:

  1. the agonizing process through which the ancient pagan world became Christian;
  2. the ways in which, between the sixth and sixteenth centuries, a European civilization was born — and what it meant when the inhabitants of the continent began to think of themselves and act like “Europeans;”
  3. the relations of Christian Europe with other religions and civilizations both in the Middle Ages (when Islam rose as a competing force within the old Roman Empire) and in the Early Modern period (when Europe discovered new worlds);
  4. the ways in which Europeans reshaped a vision not only of the globe but of the cosmos. We will try throughout to assess the kinds of sources that allowed Europeans to shape a history of those transformations and to represent their own self-identity.

The readings will be a mixture of primary sources and historical analyses chosen to generate debate. There will be a midterm and final examination as well as short writing assignments based on the readings.
