Description

The style of architecture which came to dominate the capitals of Medieval Europe was rooted in a new religious, philosophical, and even proto-scientific concept of the nature of light. For the first time, the stone walls of heavy Romanesque churchs gave way to expanses of colored glass which bathed interiors in the sacred rays Medieval scholastic churchmen had been exploring. Hand in hand with the new appreciation of light came the prerogative to stretch sacred spaces as high as their engineering permitted - the higher the nave, the closer to God. These and other characteristics of the Gothic architectural style make up the content of this course.

Who this course is for:
  • High school, university, and graduate students will find both a review of key pieces and developments as well as original research and connections which are exclusive to this course.
