PhD-course "Perceptions of Language and Learned Tradition in the Middle Ages" (3/5 ECTS), 7 to 9 May

This PhD-course focuses on how vernacular learned literacy interacted with the Latin and Greek traditions in the Middle Ages. We focus on three linguistic areas: Irish, Slavic (East and West) and Old Norse. The seminar is mainly based on primary sources in translation. Among other issues, we address the complicated distinction between native/local/vernacular and classical/Latin/Greek beyond the linguistic level, as well as the strategies for securing a degree of cultural authority for the vernacular.
