Late Antiquity into Early Islam: Methods and Problems

RELS 2400G S01 [CRN: 24313]

This course is an introduction to the essential tools of study for the transitional period between late antiquity and the early Islamic era. We will address both the history and historiography of the seventh through the 13th centuries, to include the rise of Islam, the so-called seventh century crisis in Byzantium, and the literature of the classical Islamic period. This is a graduate seminar but no knowledge of Arabic is needed for this course, and all students of late antique, early medieval, Byzantine, and/or Islamic history are welcome.
