AH 326 - The Crusades in Medieval Visual Culture

(3.00 cr.)

Explores the crusades as a catalyst for artistic encounter between western European, Byzantine, and Islamicate cultures in the Holy Land and the Mediterranean from the eleventh through the fourteenth centuries. The investigation of the richly varied art and architecture of this period-which includes intricately carved ivory boxes, scintillating mosaics, and imposing castles-provides critical insights into the complex historical processes of cultural conflict and convergence.
