3.00 crs.

Creative Arts & Cultures

This summer immersion course in Rome examines two emergent, often interconnected cultural phenomena of the Renaissance and Baroque periods: an era-defining shift in the production, forms, and purposes of art and architecture; and a new religious order, the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), whose members came to wield great influence in Italy and beyond as educators, scholars, papal advisors, and arts patrons.
