ARTHIST 347

Special Topic: The Power of Images: Medieval Art


Description

An introduction to Medieval European Art, focusing on the worldview that empowered these images and representations. The Middle Ages takes in the millennium from 500 to 1500, roughly from Byzantium to the Renaissance. Within this period various art movements and iconographic changes are recognised, including the Romanesque and Gothic. The art of this period records ever more intensely the evolution of history, civilisation, academic thought, discovery and Christian belief. This course will cover a wide range of subjects from the sacred to the secular concentrating on the dimension of faith and belief which enabled these images to both project and embody power.
