Course Description: The papacy is one of the few ancient institutions that survived the Middle Ages and continues to this day. The papacy was an important political and cultural actor which left its mark on Western Europe, and therefore the study of this institution is ideally suited for an introduction to the Middle Ages. The seminar is intended to acquaint students with important milestones of medieval papal history. Students analyze selected source texts and discuss the thinking and workings of great pope figures (such as Leo I, Gelasius, or Gregory VII). Last but not least, the various source texts and genres provide an insight into the historical auxiliary sciences, whose knowledge is indispensable for budding historians.
