ART 221 - The Art of Faith: Sacred Objects of the Middle Ages


1 unit(s)
We travel through the Middle Ages by examining sacred works of painting, sculpture, glass, and metal in the Christian West, from the British Isles to the great hub of Constantinople, and in the East, from the desert monasteries of Egypt to the trade routes of Asia Minor. As we move along we consider the rich artistic interchange among Christians, Muslims and Jews. Students work directly with medieval objects held in the Loeb Art Center and with manuscripts in the Special Collections of the Vassar Library. Andrew Tallon.

Prerequisite(s): ART 105  or ART 106 , coursework in Medieval Studies, or permission of the instructor.

Not offered in 2017/18.

Two 75-minute periods.
