This course is aimed at beginners, whether graduate students or undergraduates, familiarizing them with the principles and practice of linguistic decoding and the grammar and vocabulary of, primarily, Old English prose: historiographical (histories), hagiographical (saints' lives) and homiletic (sermons). By the end of the semester, you will be competent, if not virtuosic, readers/interpreters of Old English prose, and know a decent amount about the culture that produced the books in which it survives.
