HST 317 The Medieval Balkans and the Ottoman Turks: 1204-1481
4 hours; 4 credits
An examination of the history of the Balkans and Asia Minor (modern Turkey) between the years 1204-1481 CE. The decline of the Byzantine Empire, the ancient power in the region, set in motion a struggle for supremacy that ended with the emergence of the Ottoman Empire as a world power. This course discusses this historical process and the means by which competing states attempted to lay claim to concepts of world empire. For History majors and minors, this is designated as a pre-1700 course.
