of the Course: Although crime seems eternal, the definition of criminal
activity and understanding of its cause and consequences have changed over time.
This course will examine the nature of crime and treatment of criminals in Europe
from the late Middle Ages into the twentieth century. By studying explanations
of criminal behavior, theories of punishment, and a number of specific criminal
cases, we will try to relate crime to larger developments in European society
