During the course of 5 lectures and over 1500 years of German history we will encounter some of the Germans (and their adversaries) that changed the face of the world for ever. Students will certainly be familiar with the likes of Martin Luther, Frederic Handel or Bismarck, but how about Emperor Barbarossa (Redbeard), King Frederick II or the explorer Alexander von Humboldt? Illustrated by the art and architecture of each period, these lectures will give students a comprehensive insight into the making of the German nation and its huge impact on the history of Europe.
