ArH 358U Medicine and Magic in Romanesque Art

Focuses on the ways medicine and magic can be viewed in the art and material cultures of the Romanesque era as well as other medieval periods. We look critically at concepts such as magic and science in their historical context to better understand how medieval practices such as alchemy and astrology are represented in art including manuscripts, sculpture, amulets, and early printed books. Expected preparation: ArH 204 (expected of art & art history majors).
