HIS 233 The Italian Renaissance

(cross-listed with ENG 233)


This introduction to the literature and history of the Renaissance combines study abroad in Florence and Rome with pre-departure classroom lectures and discussions. The course offers a close examination of the literature of the period as both product of and critical commentary on the culture, art, and political turmoil in the Renaissance capitals from 1250-1527. Students will study the emergence of the Renaissance—artistically, historically, philosophically, and politically—from the Middle Ages, and also examine its ancient roots. Travel to Florence and Rome allows students to enhance their academic foundation and to place their reading into context as they visit the museums, churches, and public buildings that both house the art and stand as the architectural monuments of the age.
