MODULE I The aim of the introductory course of Medieval History is shared with the other courses of the historical area. The aim is to enable the student to critically evaluate a historical testimony by placing it in the spatial and temporal coordinates of the European Middle Ages. At the end of the course the student must be able to know the fundamental lines of development of European medieval civilization. It should also be able to independently assess the meaning of historical events and to communicate facts and ideas clearly.

MODULE II The goal of the advanced course of Medieval History is to guide the student to critical analysis of historical sources and to develop his ability to analyze a historical problem in its complexity.
