Description: 

This course examines the art, architecture, and cultural production of the Middle Ages from the fall of the Roman Empire to the Reformation. During this period, works of art both constructed and challenged the world. With an awareness of the political, religious, and socioeconomic contexts in which medieval objects were produced, we will examine key topics such as performance, vision, sexuality, and the relationship between word and image. In order to do so, we will draw on primary sources (in translation) and contemporary works of scholarship, and will engage buildings, manuscripts, devotional objects, sculptures, and textiles.

Enrollment limited to 25.
