In the master's programme Europe 1000-1800 at Leiden University you will learn to think comparatively about practices of power in premodern Europe in its global context. The courses are designed by leading scholars who work on comparative approaches to concepts such as dynasty, holy war, and citizenship, contrasting historical experiences across the globe. With this training students develop their own ideas focusing on communities, states and networks in and across Europe and the Mediterranean between 1000-1800.

Our courses explore how premodern practices of power, and the knowledge cultures that supported them, developed, were communicated and challenged.
