I so appreciated Dr. Madden's excellent guidance as he walked us through the astonishing, defining events and personalities comprising the story of the Crusades. For me, again and again throughout the series, the influences and events he described connected so many "dots" in my sketchy knowledge of these centuries. I know that when we all can get back on the literal road again to travel, my own future experiences will be so much more satisfying and enjoyable, as a result of taking this course. And, on top of it all, Madden's a great story teller. Thank you Dr. Madden!
Dr Madden is a real treat! What a marvelous lecturer! I thought at university level for several years before going into business and I appreciate how conversant you have to be with your subject area to make tine kinds of connections that Dr Madden does for his students. He is marvelously entertaining and clearly loves his subject and he communicates all that enthusiasm and complex understanding in such a coherent way. I am just so grateful to be able to access such an engaging class. I have already signed up for 2 more of his classes.
Absolutely stellar course: loaded with fascinating historical characters in a momentous period of history, massive movements and negotiations and battles all made clear and put within context, clear explanations on how it all reverberates into the modern era.
Cannot recommend this Context offering more highly.
