We use History of the English Speaking People by Winston Churchill, The Lives of the Kings & Queens of England by Antonia Fraser, and The History of Medieval Spain by J. O’Callaghan as the primary texts in this course. In addition the student reads works of literature and primary historical sources that are correlated to the time period being studied in history such asBeowulf, The Ballad of the White Horse by G.K. Chesterton, Murder in the Cathedral by T.S. Eliot, Richard the Third by Paul Murray Kendall, The Life of Sir Thomas More by William Roper, and Isabella of Spain and The Characters of the Inquisition by William Thomas Walsh. We also provide the student with a variety of supplemental historical fiction that can be used to complement the study of history through literature. We also include essay and paper topics to give the student practice with writing in variety of styles.
