OVERVIEW

The course (6 CFU - 36 hours) offers a basic introduction to (some aspects of) Slavic Studies, from the historical and linguistic point of view.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The goal of the discipline is providing the students the tools for tackling the texts of the Old Church Slavonic Corpus (and eventually those in Old Russian, etc.) and for approaching in a structured way the study of Slavic languages, both at synchronic and diachronic levels.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course is aimed at providing basic knowledge about the linguistic and cultural development of the Slavic peoples, from Proto-Slavic to contemporary Slavic languages and cultures. In view of this, the course offers an introduction to Old Church Slavonic, as well as an overview of the culture(s) of the Slavs in the early stages of their spread across Eastern and Central Europe.

PREREQUISITES

Knowledge of a Slavic language at least at the level required for passing the first-year exam

Teaching methods

The course content will be delivered via classroom lectures with the support of Aulaweb.

  1. The ethnogenesis of the Slavs: from the Indo-European unity to Early Slavic; the homeland of the Slavs and their expansion; migrations and subsequent ethnical and linguistic split.

  3. Cyril and Methodius and their mission, the Christianization of the Slavs, the alphabets.
