This module will provide a survey of the art and architecture of the Mediterranean area and Northern Europe from the fourth century to the fourteenth century. The Middle Ages is often conceived of as medieval Europe; however, this module will not only examine this region but will also explore art related to Byzantium and the Islamic worlds as well. We will pay special attention to the interconnectivity of these cultures, in addition to the ways in which each addressed similar issues of worship, the sacred image, and public and private tools of devotion.
