For every medieval Christian man and woman, temptation to sin was an experience which no faithful soul was immune to. Temptation, whose main sources were "the world, the flesh, and the devil", was believed to be a normal (even beneficial) phenomenon in one's spiritual life and growth. Often described as insidious and deceptive, temptation to sin had to be addressed cautiously, often requiring counsel from a spiritual mentor figure such as a confessor. But finding comfort and fortitude through temptation could also come from advices and guidance found in books. This class wishes to introduce the students to texts of religious guidance and explore the ways in which such texts helped define and remedy the experience of temptation for their readers.
