    OVERVIEW

    For students attending the 9CFU examination, the course is divided in two parts of overall 60 hours. The first part is dedicated to an explanation of the medieval millennium, also with reference to two of the newest and qualified handbooks; the second part aims to connect the student with the craft of the historian and his work through the sources, with reference to four different books explained in some depth.. 

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course aims to build a conceptual apparatus commensurate to understand the originale past times of the European civilisation under the perspective of the up to date trend of historiography, to give a critical reconstruction of the main problems of Middle Ages (5th-15th centuries) and a basic chronological framework, to approach the understandig of historiographical models.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    As part of the acquisition of basic knowledge related to the 5th-15th centuries, teaching aims to orient toward

    - the development of a non-generic vocabulary

    - the ability to traverse the medieval millennium with appropriate questioning

    - the ability to recognize the main problematic nodes

    - the ability to connect the acquired notions with coeval developments in different contexts-political, social and economic, but also literary, historical-artistic, historical-architectural-of human action.

    At the end of the teaching the student will be able to explain with appropriate language the main processes, dynamics, facts or key figures (either by role or relevance), with awareness of their incidence in the above-mentioned contexts.

    In the 6 cfu exam, the student must demonstrate that he/she has acquired the basic knowledge and skills indicated and can deal with one of the proposed in-depth examinations. For the 9 cfu exam, deeper and more detailed knowledge, critical awareness, and further study of a chosen topic are expected.
