Description:

As seat of the Catholic Church and center of the ancient Roman empire, the city of Rome was both a spiritual and cultural capital in medieval and early modern Europe. Beginning in the Middle Ages and ending in the 18th century, this class will investigate the fascination of Rome for early modern Europeans and consider how popes, patrons, and visitors shaped the planning of the city. Objects of study will include the development of the built environment, the display of ancient objects, sacred rituals, secular festivals, and souvenir images and artifacts created for pilgrims and tourists.
