This course brings the medieval world view to life. Between 500 and 1500 Europeans keenly studied the universe around them, learning from distant cultures and making scientific knowledge a key part of Christian faith. We will look at manuscripts and learn to use instruments like the astrolabe, to understand how the Middle Ages laid the foundations for modern science.
