Learning outcomes

Module: Storia medievale
The aim of this course is to give students methodological skills and research techniques in order to enable them to develop an autonomous critical study and a research in the history of Europe in the Early Middle Ages, with a special attention to the political and social history of Europe and of central and northern Italy in the age of Charlemagne.

Module: Storia del cristianesimo e delle chiese
to learn some of the methods and instruments of the historic-religious research, to develop the ability to analyse sources and historiography detecting the complexity of the historical problems.


Module: Storia medievale
The requirements indicated to be admitted at the Corso di Laurea Magistrale in Storia e Geografia dell’Europa (SGE); a basic knowledge of Medieval history, Latin and English.

Syllabus: Students will be introduced to the major issues of political and social history in Europe during the Early Middle Ages through the discussion of historiography, the study of original sources and the analysis of some case studies. Special attention will be devoted to some areas of the Italian peninsula, which will be also compared to some other regions of central-northern Europe. The course will stress similarities and differences in the formation of political and social organization in Europe between 8th and 9th century, especially through the analysis of the development of local societies in the same period, and in particular through the analysis of case-studies.

Teaching methods: Frontal lectures, seminars.

Module: Storia del cristianesimo e delle chiese
Prerequisites: knowledge, even elementary, of classical Latin, basic knowledge of Medieval history from IV to XV century.

Content of the course:
The Church and the women in the Christian Occident (ancient and medieval age). During the course a wide range of documents (documentary, literary, hagiographic, iconographic sources) of the very problematic and sometimes ambiguous relationship between Christian religion and women from the ancient age to the late medieval age will be provided.

Double degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!
