Sex and Sanctity in Medieval Europe


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)
