Course Description:

Late Antique and Byzantine Art concern the culture, society patterns, tastes and their artistic reverberations in late Roman times and what has come to be known as the Byzantine Empire. The Empire was centered around the city of Constantinople (Istanbul), dedicated by the emperor Constantine in 330 CE. While the boundaries of the empire shifted over its many centuries of life, the capture of the city in 1453 by Ottoman Turks drew to a formal end the history/ies of Byzantium.
