Sex and Sanctity in Medieval Europe

IHHIST331 · 4 credits

This class examines the medieval construct of gender and sexuality to understand gendered meanings of sanctity and sin, questioning the ways that sanctity influenced medieval gender creating a complex and fluid category of identification beyond a binary system and allowing for actions and activities that appear to be “gender bending.” Prerequisite: 24 credits in ISP, including ITW 101 and QL. (GRC IB)
