The course acquaints the participants with the issues of history periodization, with the emphasis on Middle Ages. The subject addresses the issue of resources, on which the historians build their findings, and points out the critical distance, necessary with originals’ and historical literature analysis. In terms of data and analysis it covers the history from Late Antiquity to the Middle Ages: a political history, the history of spread of Christianity and reform movements, economic, social, cultural history, and the history of everyday life. The focus of the course is on the past of the territory and population between the Alps and the Adriatic, as well as its connections and its role in the wider European area.
