Medieval Dinner Parties


Course description

Food and drink are the most basic of human needs and the catalysts for civilization; commensality, the practice of eating together has always meant an opportunity to refresh and relax, to converse and learn, and to socialize and cement—or destroy—allegiances. In this course, you will learn how medieval western Europeans viewed food, how they used it in their social and political interactions and rituals, and how this is reflected in their literature and documents. Explore how they used it in judging social norms, and how food preparation and feasting influenced their lives and deaths. Finally, we will look at what specific foods were on the menu.
