A Fresh Look at the Borgias


Course Information

A Fresh Look at the Borgias

A non-accredited history and heritage course

Course Code

CLL 23/24_NA_117
Course Description

The Borgias rose to prominence during the Renaissance. Originally from Spain, the family became involved in both political and religious affairs, producing two popes. They have been accused of committing horrendous crimes, including murder – especially poisoning – and incest. However, saints are also counted among the members of the family. This course will explore the history and myth of the House of Borgia from its origins to their demise, focusing on contemporary records and historical accounts. We will try to elucidate whether they were as corrupt as they have been pictured, or the victims of colossal negative propaganda.
