This course surveys a vast and varied literature, e.g., chronicle, science, theology, philosophy, art history, law. Students choose the readings because their needs vary. In past courses, we have read the Vulgate Bible, liturgies, "Pervigilium Veneris," manuscripts, chronicles of the Goths, travelogues, mythography, geography, saints' lives, commentaries on Virgil/ Cicero/ Plato, macaronic texts (Latin and/or Greek, vernacular), even Grammatical texts.
