Learning outcomes

The aim of the advanced course of Medieval History is to guide the student to the critical analysis of historical sources and to develop his / her capacity to analyze a historical problem in its complexity.
Overall, the two courses - introductory and advanced - aim to provide students with the necessary skills to orient themselves independently in a problem of medieval history. In the introductory course, therefore, the teacher underlines some aspects that will be then deepened and recalled in the progress course. During the advanced course, a direct analysis of medieval sources and documents is foreseen (translated into Italian).

Syllabus

From the analysis of the programs of the two teaching units, described below, it is clear that the theme of the advanced course emerges as the introductory course proceeds.

Assessment methods and criteria

Both parts of the exam are held in oral language. The student must demonstrate the ability to clearly illustrate three topics proposed to him, and he must correctly place each problem or event in space and time. It will also have to demonstrate that it is aware of the historical sources useful for the knowledge of these problems or events. The evaluation is assigned in thirtieths. The exam has similar characteristics for attending and non-attending students.
