This course aims to introduce global approaches to the study of medieval history, with a special focus on cross-cultural contacts between Europe, the Mediterranean world and Asia, examined through patterns of exchange, interaction, and cultural fusion. The first part will be devoted to the construction of Medieval Europe through the contribution of different cultures, with particular attention to the Latin-Germanic encounter and the coexistence with the Greek, Slavic, Jewish and Arabic elements. The second part will focus on the connections between the Euro-Mediterranean world and the “Orient” to understand the plurality of representations circulating in Europe. Particular attention will be paid to cultural, linguistic and religious relations with the Muslim world and contacts with China and the Indian subcontinent.
