This course critically reviews early Christian and Byzantine art from the 2nd to 6th century. Its fundamental idea is that early Christian art emerged and evolved as manifestations of the faith's conversation with its changing cultural contexts. Students will learn to critically engage the role theology, ecclesiology, socio-economics, and politics have in Christian art, with a special emphasis on church/ worship architecture as innovative art. The course will use a multi-media format including lectures, readings, seminar presentations and discussions, site visits, and a major essay. Means of evaluation- one 10- 15 pages research essay (60%) and participation in class (40%).
