Cursusdoelen
Students who have completed this course will have:
(1) a general understanding of Medieval law within the chosen cultures in the Early Medieval period;
(2) a deep understanding of the focus of the course (which varies from year to year);
(3) advanced linguistic knowledge of Medieval Latin, Old Irish or Old English, pertaining to law texts;
(4) The ability to undertake research pertinent to Early Medieval law using primary sources in the student’s chosen language.
Inhoud
The theme of the course is: 'Equality and inequality in early Medieval law: social and ethnic dimensions'. In Medieval law, social status and ethnicity strongly determine legal status. Medieval law is defined by the interplay of a common Roman legal tradition and vernacular law. This will be illustrated by the comparison of a Latin law lext (Lex Salica) with an Old Irish text (Críth Gablach) and an Old English text (Laws of Ine of Wessex). Out of those three medieval languages, students select the language in which they are most proficient and translate passages from original texts in that language under the supervision of a language teacher. The translation forms part of a paper that addresses a specific aspect of medieval laws on status.
