- Course Description
This course explores representations of individual and community identity in literature by Jewish, Muslim, and Christian authors in Europe from the 6th through 15th centuries. Readings will include works by some of the most famous medieval European authors, as well as anonymous texts like The Song of the Cid, The Romance of Silence and The Second Shepherds’ Play. We will study how teach text defines human identity or questions definitions and how these definitions relate to the text’s cultural context.
