What Will I Read?

In HUM 2, we begin to see how the ideas of the Ancient Mediterranean (HUM 1) spread and merged with other traditions, particularly from the north and the east. As HUM 2 explores the development of Western culture from the Roman Empire through the late Middle Ages, a time period that roughly covers fourteen centuries, booklists vary widely. Some commonly taught texts include:

    • Vergil, Aeneid
    • Gospel of Mark
    • Rumi, Selected Poetry
    • Beowulf 
    • Dante Aligheri, Divine Comedy
