The Year 1200

The Year 1200 was a blockbuster 1970 exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum. A lush catalog provided a comprehensive overview of the period. Though the catalog is out of print copies can be ordered on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/0300201664/ref=mw_dp_olp?ie=UTF8&condition=used

I team taught a mini-course based on this exhibit in my first year of teaching at Simon’s Rock. My compatriots, Graham Anderson and Ed Misch, were experienced, skilled teachers. I knew Graham’s formidable intellect as he’d taught me history in prep school. Ed Misch was a former Catholic priest whose gentle demeanor belied his two doctorates and deep experience with Church hierarchy. I brought a willingness to make travel arrangements , purchase exhibit tickets, and provide snacks upon request! I also brought a bit of new scholarship having just completed a sequence of classes on the period. So I’m glad to be back in the 13th Century with OLLI!
