Medieval Studies

This course will enable students to develop their skills for in-depth research and critical analysis of the historical sources available in Lincoln (home to 1 of 4 surviving original copies of the Magna Carta and to 1 of the finest medieval cathedrals in Europe). Students will learn skills such as palaeography and utilise historical archives to explore the economic, social and religious history of England. Some modules are supported by the wealth of literary manuscripts at Lincoln Cathedral, including 1 of only 50 full manuscripts of The Canterbury Tales, and The Thornton Romances, which contains the earliest known accounts of King Arthur's death.

Entry requirements

A minimum 2.2 Honours degree in a relevant subject. International students will require English language at IELTS 6.0 with no less than 5.5 in each element, or equivalent.

Course modules

Modules include: medieval palaeography and diplomatic; research methods. Optional modules include: cosmos and chronology; how the West was won (bishops, barbarians and the transformation of the Roman world, 300-600); intermediate medieval Latin; medieval Iberia (people, power and place); North by Northwest (comparative perspectives on Northern Europe from 750 to 1000); playing fast and loose with history (repackaging the past in medieval and modern culture); public and private emotions in the Middle Ages; reason and rebellion; saints and scholars (history and hagiography in the Middle Ages); the ends of the world as we know it (the chronicles of barbarian and the birth of the medieval order).

Assessment methods

Assessment methods include written work, usually essays or similar projects following the student's own interests within the module. Palaeography and Latin are assessed by short exams.
