SMH3058HF  L0101
Offered in Fall 2010  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2009 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

In the period between 200 AD and the end of the sixth century, Christian art emerged and evolved as a particular manifestation of the mystery of Christian faith. Sacred (but also secular) architecture witnesses this new cultural phenomenon. Churches following various patterns, baptisteries, and monasteries alongside wall paintings and mosaics, sarcophagi and small-scale pieces of art reveal and interact with a particular comprehension of the mystery of Christ and the Church. In this course, early Christian art is set against its theological, cultural, socio-economical, and political background. Discussions, presentations. One essay.  One research essay (60%) and participation in class (40%).
