Get ready for Week 5
Hello, Scott Lord, and welcome to module five, "Learning and Light"!
This module examines two medieval Christian ideas that emerged at the same time and from the same impulse. The first is the scholastic educational initiative that dominated Christian theology and resulted in the founding of universities. The second is the beautiful, light-focused Gothic architectural style embodied in Europe's great cathedrals. These two movements remain the quintessential features of medieval Christianity. Scholasticism and cathedrals emerged not only at the same time but also from the same source: a Christian conception of the unity of all things.
As a bonus, we are sharing a resource that may be of interested to you. Watch a clip from Roberto Rossellini's biographical film on the life of Saint Francis, The Flowers of Saint Francis (1950) or see the full movie here. Enjoy, but be sure to meet us back here for week five!
