Choose a work from this week’s module that you believe has a parallel in contemporary society. In other words, point out any connections you observe between the medieval period and your own culture. What are some of the shared concerns or values (keeping in mind that they may be expressed differently)? For example, in Module One we learned (through the Law Code of Hammurabi) that the enforcement of rules was as important to ancient near eastern cultures as it is for us today, although U.S. law differs from Hammurabi’s in many ways.
