Course objectives
The Lectured in Medieval Script I course is part of a series of lectures which prepare students to read and interpret Latin script from the 9th to the 12th centuries (Carolingian minuscule). The seminar is closely connected to the Latin Script in the Middle Ages (800-1200) course and students should enrol in it together with this course. Seminar students at the Lecture in Medieval Script I will improve their ability to read Carolingian minuscule using extracts connected to do documents from the seminars of the Latin Script in the Middle Ages I course.
Learning outcomes
Upon completion of the course the student will be able to:
apply their knowledge of the development of script from the 9th to the 12th century based on specific sources, particularly for dating undated texts;
transcribe original Latin texts from the period 800-1200;
analyse and read original Latin texts from the period 800-1200.
