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. The course covers the period from the fall of Rome to the death of Elizabeth I and focuses on medieval Europe. 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 Rhetoric students, class discussions and writing assignments will provide opportunities for students to acknowledge the voices that have contributed to the Great Conversation and begin to add their own compelling Christian voice.
