The course aims to equip students for interdisciplinary research in the late medieval and early modern period, with a particular emphasis on the reception of the classical tradition. The programme combines the study of images and texts, art history, philosophy, the history of science, European literature and the impact of religion on society and is offered full-time or part-time.
Working with text in its original language is an important part of this programme and we welcome those with language skills and those with interests in learning languages. During this course students will improve their knowledge of classical and/or European languages and will acquire the library and archival skills essential for research on primary texts.
This programme is also available as a Master of Research (MRes) or a Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert).
All students take three core modules and two option modules.
The core module on Language and Palaeographical Studies includes training at all levels in a range of languages which will include Latin and either Italian or French. Finally, students have the opportunity to conduct an independent research project through the dissertation, which is completed in the summer term under the guidance of a supervisor from the Warburg.The programme is supported by an unassessed Methods and Techniques of Scholarship module that will introduce you to the historiography and methods of scholarly work in early modern cultural history. It will prepare you, through a term of workshops, to choose, develop, and research the topic that forms the subject of your dissertation.
