This course will explore the artistic productions of medieval and Renaissance Europe that sought to recreate the physical environment of the Christian Holy Land. Media to be considered include architectural replicas, illustrated manuscripts, mural paintings, sculptural installations, and printed books. We will examine recent scholarship on these topics, and how they relate to broader theories of replication, virtuality, and hyperreality in visual culture.
Assessment: 100% coursework.
Prerequisite: At least one 2000-level Fine Arts course.
