Ravenna as the Capital of the Byzantine Empire


Course Information

Ravenna as the Capital of the Byzantine Empire

A non-accredited history of art course


Course Code

CLL 23/24_NA_187
Course Description

When we think about the Byzantines, what is most striking is the extensive use of gold and beautiful mosaics in palaces and religious buildings. In this two week course we will focus on the city of Ravenna, one of the most important Byzantine cities and capital of the empire from 540 to 751. The Church of San Vitale, the Basilica di Sant’ Apollinare Nuovo and Sant’ Apollinare in Classe, together with their splendid mosaic decoration, will be at the centre of the course, but we will reserve some time to analyse the production in silver, enamel, ivory, marble and paper.
