Course Description

The Plague impacted European society in a variety of ways, not the least in leading to the creation of one of the most enduring images of art history: the danse macabre, a medieval allegory for the universality of death. In this course, we will trace its various reiterations from the original murals in Paris, to Hans Holbein the Younger’s woodcuts, and modern reinterpretations in music and literature, and analyse what they can tell us about the beliefs, hopes and fears of the societies they depict.
