Bordered by the continents of Asia, Africa, and Europe, the Mediterranean Sea simultaneously connects and divides peoples and faith traditions. In this class we will explore Medieval art and architecture that served the intellectual, emotional, and spiritual needs of diverse groups of Jews, Christians, and Muslims from the fourth to the fourteenth centuries AD. Through visits to local museums, including the Getty Center, firsthand study of Medieval manuscripts, and in-class discussions, this course will highlight the plurality of Medieval society and its relevance to today.
