Stories from the Middle Ages
December 18 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:30pm on Tuesday, repeating until December 18, 2018
AT LIFELONG (4 sessions, $40)
Description: Between the fall of Rome and the rise of the Renaissance in Europe, scores of bright personalities illuminated what used to be called the Dark Ages. This course will look closely at some of these individuals and examine how they influenced the evolution of Europe. Their stories make modern day soap operas and political who-done-its look awfully tame.
Instructor: Tom Butler (Yale, 1971), enjoyed a 40-year teaching career at a variety of independent schools in New York & Connecticut. Specializing in history and economics, he also ventured into English, psychology, law, math and school administration. Tom has taught at Lifelong since 2011 and is the current Board President of Lifelong.
