This brilliantly taught audio course will ignite your imagination and enrich your mind. In 12 illuminating lectures, award-winning professor and acclaimed historian Prof. Christopher M. Bellitto (Ph. D. , Fordham University) makes medieval history both engaging and enlightening.
Throughout history, humans have conjured images to understand their relationships with other Christians, the wider world, and God. For medieval men and women, those images came from Christendom, which was the air they breathed: Christian ideas, devotions, and beliefs shaped their perspectives and mindsets.
Can we unearth their fascinating worldview today? Medieval Christianity: Imagination, Images, and Ideas does just that, transporting listeners to the world of the men and women who came before us. With Prof. Bellitto as your guide, you'll explore history and legends, heroes and threats, triumphs and disasters, literature and devotions.
In his masterful course, you will peel back layers of history to reveal new insights. As you do so, you will discover that medieval Christians lived in a world of wonder-and Prof. Bellitto's remarkable lectures will imbue you with a similar sense of wonder.
By sanctifying the ordinary you will begin to make sense of medieval Christian's earthly lives, transcend our daily lives, and see the world with new eyes. Through Prof. Bellitto's course, you will view life as they did: a marvelous journey that draws us closer to the extraordinary.
