The World of Late AntiquityCourse Cancelled

Jack Boulos Victor Tannous

Back to "Spring 2020" courses

This course will focus on the history of the later Roman Empire, a period which historians often refer to as “Late Antiquity.” We will begin our class in pagan Rome at the start of the third century and end it in Baghdad in the ninth century: in between these two points, the Mediterranean world experienced a series of cultural and political revolutions whose reverberations can still be felt today. We will witness civil wars, barbarian invasions, the triumph of Christianity over paganism, the fall of the Western Empire, the rise of Islam, the Greco-Arabic translation movement and much more.
