Students encounter The Great Conversation as it unfolded during the Middle Ages through a study of some the most influential works of the medieval times and some works inspired by this period. The course covers the period from the fall of Rome to the death of Elizabeth I and focusses on medieval England due to the influence and connections with US history and culture. Students will continue to see how, in works of history, philosophy, theology and literature, people have grappled with the big questions of life. They will be encouraged to weigh the experiences, events, and ideas they encounter in light of biblical truth. Aimed at School of Logic students, class discussions and writing assignments will provide opportunities for students to articulate their understanding of authors’ works and contrast ideas with the teaching of Scripture.
Please note that this course is considered to be a “School of Logic” course and will not earn high school credit.
