HIST 303 - Seminar: Possession and Property in Medieval Europe

FC SSCI WADV
4 credits
This seminar traces the development of notions of possession, property and ownership in a historical context. Using some of the important texts of the western tradition, and drawing from historical, anthropological and sociological traditions, we will examine experiments in communal possession and individual ownership, notions of bodily possession, from mystical experiences to witchcraft, and the nature of goods that are owned, consumed and circulated, from land and movables to other people.
