Medieval Art and Architecture
MET AH 336
This course represents an overview of Medieval Art and Architecture as it developed from late antiquity (ca. 400 A.D.) through the Early Renaissance (ca. 1200 A.D.). We will examine an array of famous Christian as well as secular monuments both in Western Europe and the Byzantine East, taking time as we go to consider each in terms not just of its esthetic features but also its essential political, religious, and geographical contexts.
