HS5211 Magic, Miracle, and Medicine in Medieval England

Instructor: Professor Peregrine Horden

To be taught at Royal Holloway, Egham. Dates and times to be arranged.

This course aims to promote an appreciation and critical understanding of the changing history of medieval therapeutics in England in its full social and religious context and to raise the profile of the subject at Masters level and demonstrate its centrality to medieval cultural history. Starting in the Anglo-Saxon period and ranging up to the end of the Middle Ages, we will look at a range of different types of sources (textual, visual, archaeological, etc).
