L540 Readings in Medieval Latin

Literature of the Long Twelfth Century
Reading and interpretation of representative authors of the "Renaissance of the Twelfth Century" with a particular (though not exclusive) emphasis on poetry.  Topics to include humanism, the mutual influence of Latin and the vernaculars, the aetas ovidiana, women writers, epic, artes poetriae, love lyric, and satire.  Previous experience reading medieval Latin helpful but certainly not necessary.
