Beginning with the Shinto shrine at Ise and ending with the Zen garden of the Ryoan-ji, the course studies a series of important Shinto and Buddhist sanctuaries, analyzing each as an integrated architectural-artistic statement of a particular set of religious teachings. The class will explore the formative influence of religious doctrine upon art in these specific settings.
This course is designed to nurture an understanding of the traditional religious art and architecture of Japan in relation to its historical and cultural contexts.
