Medieval Films

Medieval Films
The Medieval World in Film is a survey of various film portrayals of medieval culture. Modern notions of the medieval world are largely a creation of the scholars whose works have formed our concept of medieval culture and the many film directors who have played an equally important role in creating the modern notion of the Middle Ages. We will approach the historiography of the Middle Ages through Norman Cantor's The Creation of the Middle Ages, and attempt to compare and contrast the interpretations of the various films we will study to those of the most well-known medievalists.Our course will focus on four broad themes: The medieval discussion of the relationship between faith and reason, the ideal of the knight, portrayals of medieval monarchs, and the medieval martyr in film. Through our study of primary source texts and several films, we shall explore the many interpretations of medieval culture and the ways in which medieval ideas, figures and events have been used as commentaries on modern issues.

Medieval Dance

Medieval Dance (of Death)

There's an expression "to look like Death warmed over". The similar expression in Danish is "to look like Death from Lübeck".

I have always wondered what this charming Christmas-city, with its great beer and overly sweet marzipan, had done to deserve such a disparaging sobriquet.


"Death from Lübeck" was a 30 meter painting, showing Death in a long chain-dance with 24 humans - painted life-size - from all classes of society, from pope to infant. Death dances around in the procession, calling people to the dance, but most of the dancers-to-be try to decline. Pictures and text are combined so we have what may be one of the world's first and greatest comic strips.

The valley of the medieval castles
Historical hiking

The fact that the Mulde, the fastest-flowing river in central Europe, is not navigable, has to a large extent helped it to keep its original character. The numerous sights along its banks are best viewed slowly, on foot on the Mulde Valley Walking Path from Zwickau to Bad Düben.

Medieval Sources: Armenia and Georgia

Medieval Sources: Armenia and Georgia

An October, 1996 request to the discussion list LT-ANTIQ for a bibliography on Armenia in Late Antiquity produced a number of suggestions, not only for this subject, but for Late Antique Georgia, too. Contributers included Ian Colvin, Gerald E. Ottenbreit, Jr., Edward G. Mathews, Jr., and Steve Rapp. Gerald Ottenbreit generously provided some corrections and amplifications. Any remaining errors are those of the compiler

Medieval Feasts

Medieval Feasts
Following the traditional standards of the middle ages, we will begin the feast with soup that satisfied 14th century families. Wholesome and good, heated in our spectacular fireplace and served piping hot right out of the kettle. Bread will be served to soak up the broth. www.gasthausonthelake.com/Gasthaus-MedievalFeast.html
