The World of Michelangelo
ARHA 329
Fall 2016
Section: 01  

This course is an examination of the works by Michelangelo in painting, sculpture, architecture, and poetry in the light of the social, religious, and political worlds in which he participated. Special attention will be paid to his relationship to the Medici in Florence and his papal patrons in Rome.

The seminar emphasizes the early sources as ways to understand how Michelangelo's works were experienced by his contemporaries. This involves the relationship between art and the divine and the erotics of represented beauty.
