ARTH 2155 - Art and Science in the Middle Ages


During the medieval period, power and knowledge required the endorsement of clerics.

The artworks surveyed in this course provide lasting records of critically creative confrontations between the scientific and spiritual traditions linked to medieval Christianity, Islam, and Judaism.
