Un Coup D/Oeil Sur La France Medievale

Medieval France is a period that does not get much attention in today’s world, but there were important ideas, people and movements in our western heritage that this group would like to bring to light. The students will present the outcome of their research on special people, little known movements, surprising events and a look at the presence of faith in the France of the twelfth to the fourteenth centuries. The topics covered are: le premier héros de la France; l’empereur Carolus Magnus, l’origine de la Normandie, les Cathares, la foi dans la vie médiévale, et un sujet à être annoncé. Les presentations seront en français.
