This course examines Byzantine art, and its influence on the art of Byzantine and Slavic lands from 5th century to 14th century (Greece, the Balkans, Russia and the neighbouring countries). We will seek to contextualise extant visual and material culture, and examine the various attitudes to images that are apparent in relation to geography, chronology, religion, society and politics.

Participants will learn how to identify these wonderful works of art, as we study the interplay between evolving styles and over a thousand years of historical, theological and political influences. The pictorial language or ‘iconography’ of these works will be examined as well as the belief systems of their time. We will discuss approaches to ‘reading’ their messages, as well as looking at the influence these works had over past generations.
