Honours Seminar in Medieval History HTA422


This Honours Seminar examines the extent to which theories and practices of medieval Christianity were gendered, focusing on both institutional and private aspects of religion. Case studies are taken from western Europe in the 12th to 14th centuries. The Honours Seminar examines monks and nuns, anchorites, beguines, the 'semi-religious', and more. Special attention is given to the historiography of medieval women, gender, and religion, in order to explore the ways in which scholarly views and theories have changed and developed from the 1970s to today.
