Berlin: Perspectives on a Metropolis
Credit Hours: 

The subject of this course is the impact of the crusades on the literature and culture of medieval Europe in general and Germany in particular. We will trace the development of religious theories and practices of warfare and a corresponding new, ethical-spiritual institution of the warrior (knighthood); explore the influence of these developments on literary genres like heroic epic, courtly romance, and courtly love poetry; and examine the long-term historical legacy of the German crusades in the Baltic and expansion in Eastern Europe. GRMN 4510 is a Special Topics course; course will differ from semester to semester.
