AREN 508 Dante and Giotto (Humanities Elective)

(Second semester—odd years/3 credits) 

An exploration of the culture of late medieval Florence, addressing such topics as the physical environment of the city, the Florentine historical perspective, spiritual and aesthetic sensibilities. The course will focus on two of the greatest artists of the period: Dante Alighieri and Giotto. (In May, after final exams, students will be offered the opportunity to travel to Italy-—Florence, Siena, Padua and Assisi-—as a group.)
