The visual and cultural development of European art in the medieval period.
This paper looks at art produced in Western Europe from the emergence of Christian art and the anglo-saxon period to the Gothic period of the 13th and 14th centuries. It examines work in a variety of media, such as manuscripts, mosaics, monumental sculpture and the architecture of the Gothic cathedral. We will consider the significance of pilgrimage and the cult of relics, contemporary ideas about art and the development of architectural forms.
