Learning outcomes

The course aims to provide the methodological and cultural foundations for a study of the history of Christianity within the wider context of the history of the Western world. It sets out to develop the skills needed to:
- read and interpret sources and use the tools of historical-religious scholarship;
- critique sources in relation to the issues faced by historical-religious scholarship;
- navigate specialised bibliography, in addition to the manual;
- read and transcribe an archive source.
Prerequisites are at least a basic grasp of Latin and a general familiarity with the history of Antiquity, late Antiquity and the Middle Ages from the I to the XV centuries.


Outline: Religious experiences, charitable works and leper hospitals between the XII and XIII centuries. The course will look at the most important religious experiences and forms of conversion occurring between the XII and XIII centuries in the Christian West. Special attention will be given to the results of these conversions in the area of charity and hospital aid. This will be followed by an examination of medieval leper hospitals and a special look at Verona’s hospital San Giacomo alla Tomba and its documents. An opportunity has also been planned for the study, reading and transcription of documents in the Archivio di Stato di Verona where the fund of documents pertaining to the Veronese leper hospital is stored.

Teaching methods
For students attending the course the main teaching methods will be the traditional lecture, interspersed with seminar type discussions where students will have an opportunity to raise particular questions and issues. In this course there will also be a mid-course evaluation consisting of a paper/presentation to be given by the student on the topics developed in the lectures. During the lectures a collection of sources will be distributed and examined which will constitute part of the programme. Other bibliographic references useful for an exploration of the topic will be provided over the course of the lectures.
Activities supporting the teaching: seminars, meetings and conferences on the topics of Christianity recommended or organized by the teacher.
