History 340 HIS 340
Light on Europe in the "Dark Ages" 3 (2-1-0-0)

Often referred to as the "Dark Ages", the period from c. 400 to c. 1000 was the period in which the Roman world was transformed into its three "heirs" that have defined the history of the West ever since: the Byzantine Empire 'Eastern Europe', Western Christendom, and Islamic civilizations. This course will evaluate the transformation of late antiquity and the rise of Western Christendom in the early Middle Ages, focusing especially on the relationship between the Christian church and society.
