This course of twenty four lectures will examine the history of a period known as the High Middle Ages. During the three centuries under consideration here, Europe ceased to be an economically underdeveloped, intellectually derivative, and geopolitically passive part of the world.
Instead, a newly invigorated medieval society experienced a revival of urban life; it witnessed the birth of new philosophical movements and educational institutions; and it expanded at the expense of neighbors who traditionally had expanded at Europes expense. We will examine how and why Europe experienced this reversal of fortune and analyze the social, intellectual, religious, and political transformations that, taken together, constituted the flowering of medieval civilization. In addition, we will also study the very concept of the Middle Ages to understand how the period came to be so designated.
