A nice light lecture series. I found it a useful supplement during a course on Medieval saints.


Brilliant. All the stuff I wanted to learn in school but sadly never had the chance. This lecturer is exceptional; witty and informative in a way so many lecturers need to be. I now understand as a foreigner why Yale and Harvard have so much distinction and happy that more ppl can attend uni there. The lecturer is on par with exceptional presentation like historian colleague Phillip Daedler at Harvard.

History of Early Middle Ages

Excellent course. I pride myself in my knowledge of history but this was a blank slate to me and this course filled in this black hole. Very well taught. I listened to the lectures while I ate my breakfast. Thank you Doctor Freeman
