Section 001: An Inquiry into the Mentality of the end of the Middle Ages. A Window on the Fifteenth Century: Le Journal ou Memoires d'un bourgeois de Paris.
Book: Le Journal d'un bourgeois de Paris. Livre de Poche. Lettres Gothiques. Language of instruction: French. Students of MARC or non-French concentrators may use English for their oral presentations and papers. Knowledge of Old French and Modern French Required?: Some helpful. One should possibly have a 300-level knowledge of Modern French. The purpose of this course is to understand as much as possible the nature of medieval life as presented by the author of Le Journal d'un bourgeois de Paris; in other words, to re-construct according to the "Journal" daily life in the XVth century. The Journal d'un bourgeois de Paris was written between 1405 and 1449 by a Parisian who was probably a canon of Notre Dame as well as a member of the University. His testimony on daily life is a precious document on the opinions and mentalities at the end of the Guerre de Cent ans, when Armagnac and Bourguignons were fighting, at the time of Jeanne d'Arc. The text will be read in Old French. The Old French of this period is already more "modern" and therefore the language is accessible even to those who have had little training with Old French. Knowledge of Modern French would be helpful, of course. The reading and study of the text will demand some historical knowledge and research. In order to assure an exact understanding of the text, we shall translate important sections into English while fully explicating the information and allusions. Students will be assigned portions of the text to prepare for class. Presentations may be in French or in English, although the first language of the class will be French. Aside from the oral exposes, students will write a major paper on an aspect of the Fifteenth Century as inspired by the Journal d'un bourgeois de Paris (15-25 pp. typed double space, due December 1, 1992). No final examination. Oral presentations will be 50% of the grade and the final paper 50%. (Mermier)
