In this course, we will explore ideas of morality and ethics in the Middle Ages. The primary material for the course will be medieval accounts of the lives of famous men and women. We will analyze the stories and develop an understanding of medieval categories of "good" and "bad." First, students will be asked to evaluate medieval theories of behavior with a focus on understanding the idea of "virtue." Second, students will be given the opportunity to explore how medieval authors understood the implications of morality. The course will be discussion-based and students will be graded on participation, short papers, and an exam.
