ARTH 214 - Synagogues, Churches and Mosques: Sacred Art of the Medieval Mediterranean

FC ARHU CD
4 credits
The art and architecture of Judaism, Christianity and Islam in the Mediterranean from the first to the fifteenth century. We will study religious art typologically (for example, what roles did religious buildings play?), through important works (i.e. the Great Mosque of Cordoba), sites (i.e., Jerusalem, Damascus, Rome, Istanbul) and media (metalwork, textiles, and manuscripts). We will emphasize art’s contribution to contact, exchange and conflict between the three religions, with particular attention to Spain.
Prerequisites & Notes: An introductory course in Art History or Religion.
This course is cross-listed with JWST 326
