This course will focus on images of power, piety, and belief in the European High Middle Ages (c. 900 - c. 1400), from Charlemagne and the Carolingian contribution to late Gothic and Marco Polo’s travels. The achievements of the Romanesque style in the great monasteries, leading to the development of the Gothic cathedrals will be explored. We will also study the objects and images that filled these buildings - mosaics, sculpture, paintings, reliquaries, illuminated manuscripts, metalwork, jewelry, stained glass.
