From meticulous illuminated manuscripts to soaring Gothic cathedrals, this course will introduce students to the visual language of medieval monuments, paintings, sculptures, mosaics, and manuscripts.

By reconstructing the physical, geographical, sociological, and historical context in which the works were created, this Art History course aims to bring medieval art to life.
