Rome once ruled the entire Mediterranean world, and its cultural legacy looms large in Western civilization. It is the city that gave its name to the ancient empire, and for almost two thousand years, Rome has been more than a literal place. It has also been an icon of culture era. In the ancient world, the city epitomized the earthly splendor of Roman civilization. In the Medieval period its political importance waned, and the city was reduced to a symbolic, spiritual center – the city’s decaying pagan edifices signaling the triumph of Christianity. In the Renaissance, Humanists and the Papacy sought to reclaim the city’s Classical past and re-work it into a new vision of the city as both the spiritual and temporal “caput mundi,” (head of the world). Through the lens of its monuments, this course will examine the art, architecture and culture of three epochs in the city’s history: Ancient, Medieval and Renaissance/Baroque. Classroom time will be minimal as students’ primary mode of exploration will be site visits.
