Immerse yourself in the art and culture of the Middle Ages in this daylong course focusing on the masterpieces in the exhibition Medieval Treasures from the Cleveland Museum of Art (on view October 30, 2007–January 20, 2008 at the Getty Center).
Through lectures, discussion, and exhibition tours, museum educators and art historians will introduce you to two key components of medieval life: religious devotion and the practice of chivalry, the system of knighthood and knightly conduct that defined the nobility of the Middle Ages. You'll examine peerless examples of religious and courtly arts of the Middle Ages—including armor, reliquaries, illuminated manuscripts, decorative works of gold and silver, tapestries, carved ivory, and sculpture—and come away with a deeper appreciation of the achievements and complexities of the medieval world.
