Fridays from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Following last season’s sucessful course on ancient cultures, this course analyzes the converging cultures that created Europe after the fall of the Roman Empire through High Middle Ages and the Renaissance. It covers the period 500 through 1500.

It was a time of great creativity, change, and expansion but also of pain and disillusionment. The course explores these dichotomies through the lens of 20 personalities and ideas that shaped the cultural history of the period, including Charlemagne, Eleanor of Aquitaine, the Knights Templar, the Magna Carta, the laws of Chivalry, the architecture of the great cathedrals, the rise of Islam, and the dawn of Early Modern Europe.

Juliette de Marcellus is a pianist, teacher, prize-winning music critic, and lecturer. She has translated and edited her father’s “Atlas of Man,” which depicts the migrations of man since the first Ice Age and the Earth’s climate history. For many years, Ms. de Marcellus was a music critic for Cox newspapers and for magazines, including Opera News.
