Winter 2018, ARTH 394 Whose Fault is the Renaissance? Medieval Romes and Modernity (3). Integral to the idea of the Renaissance is a rebirth of ancient culture, typically understood as a return of the majesty that was Rome. But which Rome was being revived? Was it the city of the emperors, august patrons of philosophy, rhetoric, and public art? Or was it the city of St. Peter and the apostles, founders of the Christian church and the papacy? Both of these Romes survived side by side in the physical fabric of medieval Rome. This seminar examines the different ways that elements of ancient Rome were referenced in the art and architecture of Rome and central Italy (including Assisi and Florence), from the 13th to the early 15th century. (HA) Gustafson.
