From the 10th to the 14th century, the Medieval Church faced many challenges including the rise of divergent theological and spiritual thought, diverse experiments in reform and the coming of Islam into the Christian world. This unit seeks to explore the contours of these challenges in order to wrestle with related challenges in the Church today.
Identify the particular challenges facing the mediaeval church, both from within and external to the Church itself
Develop the ability to interpret primary and secondary sources in mediaeval church history
Demonstrate an understanding of the heresies, reform movements and the Crusades
Analyse and critique the arguments for and against various heresies, reform movements and the Crusades
Suggest and demonstrate, with examples, how mediaeval studies can inform our own times.
The Unit is an elective within the discipline of Church History. Pre-requisite: CH1001Y – Survey of Early and Medieval Church History or equivalent.
The unit will consist of Lectures, Tutorials and discussion forums all delivered in a Seminar style (whether on-line or face to face) so that students can interact with the ideas presented, engage with other students and their reflections and ideas and develop skills in critique, debate and practical application.
