Description
Byzantine civilization played an important role in the Renaissance that reshaped the West. This course investigates the transition of Mediterranean power and culture from Rome to the eastern portion of the Roman Empire in the 3rd and 4th centuries A.D. Approaching the subject both chronologically and thematically, the lectures span nearly 1,000 years and detail the cycles of rise and fall in the Byzantine world, including the impact of Christianity, the resurgent reign of Emperor Justinian, the Byzantine Dark Ages, the cultural flowering of the epoch of the Macedonian emperors, and the impact of the Crusades. A key unifying theme is the role of Byzantium in the transmission of the Classical heritage to the medieval West and to Islam. Professor Kenneth W. Harl's lectures are packed with information and understanding. The 12 hours of instruction in this course will open a parallel universe as magnificent and varied as any we know.
