After finishing this course the successful student is able to

In this thematic course we study aspects of medieval culture through reading Latin source texts. Supported by the reading of secondary literature we read Latin representatives of medieval culture, concentrating on a literary genre (e.g, saints lives, letters, historiography) or on a specific concept (e.g. amicitial, citizenship).|
The course counts as language requirement Latin for students in the RMA AMRS with sufficient elementary knowledge of the Latin grammar (BA2 level).
