ARTH 311 - Art History without a License

FC ARHU
4 credits
Art history is a modern discipline that did not exist in the ancient or medieval West. Despite the discipline’s absence, ancient and medieval people were passionate about old objects and buildings, asking questions we recognize as art historical: Who made that? How? What does it mean? We will study why people asked these questions and how they answered them. Our coverage will range from c. 0 to 1500, include major sites in Europe and the Mediterranean (i.e. Rome and Jerusalem), and consider Jewish, Christian and Muslim audiences. Careful and creative attention to primary sources will be emphasized. Field trip required.
Prerequisites & Notes: ARTS 299 or instructor consent
