Course Description

This course will look at the long and multi-faceted reign of Ivan IV the Terrible. Ivan IV was Russia’s first officially crowned and anointed Tsar (1547), a change of status which necessitated the creation of a new imagery in keeping with contemporary protocol of visual diplomatic discourse. The new official status of Russia’s ruler caused unease in the neighbouring states, as well as in Rome, which did not look favourably on Russia’s role as the keeper of the Byzantine Christian rite. At the same time, Russia began expanding its territories to the East, and established commercial ties with Britain. Regalia and symbols of authority shall further be considered, to conclude with the architectural landmarks of the period.
