GHUM 1023 - Humanities II

3 Credit Hours
1000 A.D. to 1700 A.D.
Second course of the humanities sequence treats world history, literature, philosophy and art spanning from A.D. 1000-1700. The course will examine the emergence and development of Arabic culture within the context of the rise of Islam. In the Western world, the medieval period will be explored as both a recovery of classical antiquity and the integration of secular learning with sacred doctrine. Key issues treated in the Renaissance will include the renewal of skepticism, the beginnings of modern physical science, and the splintering of Christendom with the Reformation. Focusing on the reading of primary texts, readings may include Aquinas, Dante, Luther, and Shakespeare.
