Spanning the period from the fourth to the mid-13th century, this art history course covers the rise of Christianity in the East and West, and demonstrates how patrons and artists of the early Middle Ages transformed Classical principles to meet the aspirations of the new world order. Buildings and artefacts as diverse as Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, the Gloucester Candlestick, the Gospels of Henry the Lion and the Alfred Jewel, will be set within their historical context, and interpreted in terms of their patronage, materials and techniques, function and original setting.
