Learning outcomes

The introductory course of Medieval History pursues the objective - shared with other teachings of the historical area - to enable the student to critically evaluate a historical testimony, placing it in the spatial and temporal coordinates of the European Middle Ages. 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).
