This course will give an introduction to the life and writing of Ramon Llull (d. 1316), Catalan polymath at the turn of the fourteenth century. We will read from Llull’s narrative, philosophical, polemical, and autobiographical texts, and discuss his ideas of religion and history. We will pay particular attention to his autobiography and his novels, Felix and Blaquerna. We will read all texts in Castilian translation, but students interested in Catalan or Latin can read the originals if they want. This course will be of interest to students interested in Spanish history, religion, languages, or literature.
