Game of Thrones might not be your cup of tea (or mead), but many of the fantastical people, places, objects, and beasts are based in real medieval history. Spanning 500–1500 CE, the medieval period saw tremendous triumphs and catastrophes—including the fall of the Roman empire, the rise of Christianity, and the ravages of the Black Death.

Each moment impacted artistic expression, resulting in a rich array of beasts and buildings, monuments and manuscripts, reliquaries and revivals. In this four-week course, become familiar with the iconography found in works of art from the medieval period as instructor Jacqueline Lombard unravels the differences among artistic styles including Byzantine, Anglo-Saxon, Romanesque, and Gothic. Don your favorite tunic (please leave your sword at home) and join us for a look into the real medieval world.
