Description

Module 3: Becoming Global and Staying Local: The Mediterranean from 300-1500 CE

The lessons in this module introduce students to the writings of several key historical figures from the time period and provide alternatives to stereotypical characterizations about the role and importance of women, interfaith relations, the state of learning in medieval times, and the surprising modernity of business practices and cross-cultural trade. The lessons feature study of religion, cities, business, and literacy. Selections from medieval and modern historians—in addition to images, a power point, and film clips—provide context for exploring Mediterranean cities and how they developed, how books were produced, literacy among women and children, how business was conducted along the varied trade routes, and commonalties and levels of interaction among followers of the three major faiths in the region: Islam, Christianity, and Judaism.
