Knowledge-Value Courses: Creative Arts and Cultures

This course is a multi-disciplinary survey of the interdependence of the arts and culture in the Greek world from its semi-legendary beginnings in the Mycenaean age through the Classical, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and Post-Byzantine period. Students explore the contribution of the arts on Greek culture, from architecture to sculpture to drama to cuisine, with particular emphasis on its extraordinary continuity throughout the centuries as well as its massive influence – by way of its reception from the Renaissance onwards - on the development of the art, thought and morality of the Western world.
