Centuries before the Renaissance proper, the twelfth century witnessed an explosion of intellectual activity which produced some of the most original thinkers, writers, and artists in the Middle Ages. Romanesque art and architecture as well as manuscript illumination reached new heights. Philosophical debates and scholastic development would culminate in the creation of universities. In addition, vernacular literatures were established and courtly love developed along with chivalry. This course will study the major artistic, literary, and philosophical achievements in this remarkable century.
