An introduction to the historiography of medieval Europe, emphasizing breadth of coverage and targeted to basic frames of knowledge. Readings include works on early and later medieval Christianity, Christianization, monasticism, and heresy; social and economic history; political and institutional history (Merovingians, Carolingians, France, England); literacy and popular culture. Special attention is also paid to the way to read books and take notes productively. Requirements: 1) two assignments on individual readings; 2) one or two broadly analytic, formal essays (of the sort one would find on a written orals exam); 3) a longer essay applying supplementary readings to the core readings.
