OVERVIEW

The course addresses medieval public documents (imperial, realm, lordly, pontificate etc.), private and hybrid (city, episcopal etc.), understood as written evidence of a fact of a legal nature compiled in observance of certain forms aimed at bringing about trust and giving proof. The form rather than the contents of documents will be examined. Some public acts and private documents will be read and their formal characteristics will be analysed.

EXAMS

ASSESSMENT METHODS

There will be an oral exam. Students will be assessed on the basis of primarily general oral questions that enable the examining board to evaluate students’ capacity to frame topics, use specific lexicon, their readiness to discuss with specific appropriate knowledge and respond to any objections and requests for clarification, the ability to support discussions with interdisciplinary links without moving away from the themes the programme tackles. During the exam students’ ability to read and analyse documents proposed during the course will be evaluated.
