On April 24, MSTU student Nate Ferguson directed fellow students in the 12th century “Play of Adam and Eve”, to explore the way medieval people expressed the relationship between humans and the supernatural.
The participants in HIST 329 Medieval England took to the East Quad to work off some exam week stress. We played Kubb, the (quasi)-medieval lawn game (very similar games are recorded, so who’s to say this one wasn’t played?).

Our speaker series, several courses and other activities next year will explore these nocturnal themes
Why Choose Medieval Studies?
Your future employers—whatever you decide to do—want to see evidence of your broad range of interests, your skills in assessing and interpreting evidence, your critical thinking abilities, your foundation in the humanities, your keen curiosity about the world, your adaptability in using different methods and techniques to solve problems and your communication skills.
All of these skills and more are honed in the Medieval Studies minor. In addition, you will find that the cultural worlds of the Middle Ages are endlessly fascinating, both evocative of our age and very remote from it. In the Medieval Studies Program you will discover great literature, profound philosophy, groundbreaking theology, fabulous art and some the most interesting people you'll ever meet.
