ARTH 2280 Medieval Art


This course provides an introduction to the visual culture of the European “Middle Ages,” from the conversion of Constantine in the 4th century to the first stages of Renaissance style. Students examine architecture, sculpture, painting, and metalwork from the early Christian, Byzantine, early Medieval, Romanesque, and Gothic periods. In each case, the class investigates the cultural forces that shaped the works of art and discusses the ways in which the objects might have been received in their own times. The course also considers the objects’ relevance in the 21st century. This course is Writing Intensive. Prerequisite(s): ARTH 1010  OR ARTH 1100 
Credits: 3.0
