Hours & Credits
This course explores the art of Rome in transition from the late Imperial age into the early Christian, from the 3rd to the 6th centuries. Attention is also paid to the developments across the Mediterranean region and in Constantinople, to the relationship to Late Antique art and to the formation of Christian iconography. Classes are held on-site and in the classroom with a possible excursion outside Rome. The course goals are to grasp the nature of art in periods of transition and to hone skills of critical analysis.
