Fine Arts | Survey of Medieval Art:: Classical Art and Archaeology
A226 | FINA | Bassett, Sarah
This course offers a survey of the art and architecture of the
Middle Ages in the Mediterranean world and western Europe from the
fourth through 13th centuries. Students will be introduced to such
characteristically medieval monuments as the early Christian
basilica, the Insular gospel book, and the Gothic cathedral through
a series of chronologically presented ‘case studies’. These
studies will form the armature on which to build an understanding of
medieval modes of representation in their cultural context.
Two exams and a short paper.
