Martyrs, Monks, and Mystics: Italy from Early Church to Renaissance

Jun 1–Jun 14 Time TBA
HIST 535 1–3 Credits (No audit available)

Course Description

Beginning in ancient Rome and ending in Renaissance Florence, this trip will trace the development of Christian life and devotion through the centuries from the era of persecution through to the Christian society of the late middle ages and early Renaissance. From the catacombs in Rome to the Florentine world of Dante, we will see before our eyes in the physical remains of architecture and art the transition of Christianity from a persecuted sect to unique civilization.

Please note: This course is associated with a tour with Christian Journeys. Participation in the tour is necessary to complete course requirements. See below for more details.
