An accredited history module

Course Code

Course Description

It is well known that Archbishop Thomas Becket was murdered in Canterbury Cathedral in 1170, but his life illustrates many of the social, political and economic transformations of the twelfth century. Born into a mercantile London family, Becket studied at Paris and Bologna universities at a time of great changes in learning, law and medieval political thought. These changes are reflected in his career in the church, his role as Lord Chancellor, and the circumstances that led to his death. This module explores the Twelfth Century Renaissance through the life and career of Thomas Becket.
