Topic: Roman de la Rose.  In F615 we shall read the entire _Roman de
la Rose_. In my lectures I shall draw out the classical tradition in
philosophy, history, and theology that forms the foundation of this
work. I shall discuss in some detail the 12th century philosophical
texts that are fundamental to understanding this work and we shall
gloss the work’s major parts. Students will be expected to present a
paper to the class. There will be a final exam.
