SCQF Level 10 (Year 3 Undergraduate)
This course examines a range of texts in diverse genres composed in medieval Europe from the thirteenth to the sixteenth centuries, exploring how love, eroticism, and sexuality are portrayed and considering their aesthetic, cultural, and philosophical significance. Particular attention is given to the concept of courtly love and its development; the relationship between gender and desire; and the interplay between sacred and secular ideas of love.
