On Monday, March 20th, join us for first of the series of the Dr. Tom Clinch Memorial Lectures: "Shedding Light on the Dark Ages: The World in 717."

An inter-disciplinarian panel of Carroll faculty will discuss the world in the early eighth century, in an era after the collapse of the Roman Empire called the "Dark Ages." Topics will include the siege of Constantinople of 717, the growing power of the Franks in the West, the preservation of learning in Anglo-Saxon England, transformations in the Islamic World, and the origins of the Iconoclastic Controversy in the Church.
