The Middle Ages were often called the dark ages. This may be more modern myth, than fact. This presentation will highlight some of the glorious and mysterious aspects of that time, working with texts, images, music, architecture, magical arts, philosophy, and religion as well as addressing problematic issues and conflicts. Some of those pertain to the relationship between Jews and Christians, the crusades, multilingualism, the issue of toleration/tolerance, and the quest for God, especially through mystical visions. The focus will also rest on the most glorious art works from that time period, such as illustrated manuscripts, which will be accompanied by samples of medieval music.

Presented by Dr. Albrecht Classen, University Distinguished Professor, Grand Knight Commander of the Most Noble Order of the Three Lions. Made possible by AZ Humanities.
