CMRS 333.3 — 1/2(1.5L-1.5P)
Exploring Medieval and Early Modern Manuscripts

Introduces the student to basic elements in the study of manuscripts. The greatest portion of the course will involve guided transcription, annotation, and analysis of manuscripts relevant to the research of the instructor. The texts in question will never have been edited and thus represent entirely original research. In part it will also involve learning about methods such as context function analysis, provenance research, and historical bibliography. Although this will be done initially through lectures, the experience of confronting pre-modern manuscripts first-hand in all of their richness will form the backbone of the course.

Prerequisite(s): 6 credit units 200-level or above HIST, ENG, or CMRS or permission of instructor.
Note: Pre-1815; Europe and Great Britain.


CMRS 401.3 — 1(3S)
CMRS Texts and Themes

Many aspects of medieval and renaissance culture had their roots in the Greco-Roman Classical period. Detailed study of a selected text or theme and related scholarship aims to deepen understanding of cultural continuity and change between the three periods. Texts and themes will change yearly. Please consult CMRS homepage: http://www.artsandscience.usask.ca/cmrs/.

Prerequisite(s): CMRS 110 and CMRS 111, or INTS 101.12, or permission of the program director.
Note: Pre-1815; Europe and Great Britain. Students may take this course more than once for credit, provided the topic covered in each offering differs substantially. Students must consult the Department to ensure that the topics covered are different.
