This seminar will focus on a pair of common genres of literature in the Middle Ages, “lives” (vitae) and “deeds” (gestae), in order to introduce students to medieval biographical writing.
2 to 5 pm, ten consecutive Fridays
9 am to 4:45 pm
Students pursuing the study of European culture during the Middle Ages often assume that their serious research will have to take place in European archives.
2015 will mark the 750th anniversary of the birth of Dante Alighieri in 1265, and the 31st year since the first Lectura Dantis Newberrania.
