The course aims to introduce students to a specific topic about medieval society and institutions, to show them a research method and to provide them with skills to carry out individual research on Middle Age history.
At the end of the course, the student will be able to:
(a) report the main contents of the course, using an appropriate vocabulary;
(b) expose methods that have been used in the research path to reach determined conclusions;
(c) analyze a historical source about the subjects covered in the teaching describing the features and articulations of its form and content
(d) judge the results of the research critically, hypothesising different solutions or proposing further research.
Church and laity in the Middle Ages. The contrast between clergy and laity is one of the keys to understand the entire history of Western Christianity. The subject will be discussed in general terms (definitions; phases of the contrast during the Middle Ages) and in the history of brotherhoods:
- prayer associations
- hospital foundations
- penitent order
- brotherhoods and hospices
- corporations and guilds
- brotherhoods in modern ages.

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.
