The Medieval Reformation: Sources (HIH3277)

30 credits

The profound political, religious, social and economic changes Western Society and the Church underwent in the years between 900 and 1215 are described as the ‘Medieval Reformation’ ; the lives of the clergy and of ordinary lay people were transformed as the Church became a separate entity. Using sources in translation this module investigates a range of original materials to explore these changes including church law, saints’ lives, chronicles, charters, and letters as well as architectural and artistic evidence.
