On the Medieval and Renaissance Studies pathway you’ll study the myriad ways in which power was understood, communicated and exercised during the Middle Ages and Renaissance period (c.300-c.1700 CE).
The programme draws on our considerable medieval and early modern expertise across history, literature, languages, and archaeology. We examine issues such as:-
