Art and Architecture Through Roman Eyes - AHIX265

This unit provides an introduction to the artistic and architectural traditions of the Roman world from the late republic until the early imperial period. Learn about the development of the city of Rome from its foundation through to its transformation into the imperial capital of the Roman Empire under Augustus and his successors. We will analyse a wide range of ancient visual texts, including monuments, private buildings, buildings for entertainment and leisure, sculpture, painting, gems and coins as well as a selection of ancient written sources. Particular attention will be paid to the relationship between art, architecture and the development of Roman politics and society.
