The successful student is able|
- to understand and interpret aspects of medieval culture in their context;
- to read and translate medieval Latin source texts;
- to phrase acquired knowledge in written assignments
- to use and apply the apparatus (specialized dictionary, grammar);
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).
Analytical and professional skills.
