This course offers a sweeping view of the political, social and cultural development of Europe from ancient times to 1500. The lectures and readings will focus on the culture of the ancient Mediterranean world, the destruction and transformation of that culture, and the birth of a distinctive culture on the European peninsula. Special attention will be given to war as a force for social transformation, literacy/education, the rise of the nation-state, and the birth of European self-identification.
