DESCRIPTION

This unit examines the ways 'Medieval Europe' expanded to become 'The Medieval World', paying particular attention to issues of cross-cultural contact. Between 1000 and the early fourteenth century medieval culture pushed far beyond the limits of old Europe: new settlements were created in eastern and northern Europe, crusader states were established in the Holy Land, and trade routes and European Christian missionaries joined Europe with Asia. At the same time, a range of different cultures affected medieval Europe: e.g. Mongol expansion, intellectual influences from the Muslim world in the Middle East, economic influences from Byzantium, heretical Christian groups, as well as non-Christian religions. The unit investigates the characteristics and legacies of medieval geographic and cultural expansion, including the positive and negative consequences of cultural interactions.
