CHST 635 - Women and Gender in the Middle Ages

3 credits
This course will concentrate on reading and writing the history of women and gender in the medieval European church. We will explore medieval texts and modern debates concerning the relationship between women and men, women and the church, and women and God within the medieval Christian tradition and also the larger social context within which this tradition evolved. One aim of this course is to consider and problematize the rubrics that modern historical studies typically bring to the study of women in the pre-modern past, including such notions as womens independence, power, agency, individuality, and subjectivity.
