great personalities and institutions such as Charlemagne, Eleanor of Aquitaine and the Knights Templar, and important ideas such
as the Magna Carta, the laws of Chivalry, the architecture of the great cathedrals, and the dawn of modern knowledge. The class will also trace the growth of Islam during this period.
