Ever since Constantine the Great showed his favour for Christianity in the fourth century, the Church became a power which competed with kings and emperors, until the Reformation in the sixteenth century. This course will examine 1000 years of medieval Christianity, from its origins in the East, through its development in the West, its power, its contributions to society, and its contradictions. It will deal with written and visual evidence to create a picture of the Church’s rise to, and fall from, prestige and power.
