A Confluence of Cultures: The Art of Christians, Muslims and Jews in the Medieval Mediterranean

Thursday 25 January 2018, 7.00PM to 9.00pm

Enrol and pay online 

While the Middle Ages often evokes images of knights, castles and crusaders, this era was also an extraordinary period of cross-cultural exchange among Christians, Muslims and Jews. The visual arts survive as a testament to this time of both inter-religious cooperation and violent conflict. This course approaches this subject through the objects themselves - luxury goods, architecture, manuscripts, ceramics, tapestries and metalwork - and through the roles these objects played in trade networks, religious devotion and political relationships in the medieval era.
