It goes without saying that the Bible exerted a tremendous impact upon European culture, but how did such famous artists as Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Rembrandt, and modern artists interpret biblical subjects and depict its men and women? This course focuses upon heroes and sinners from the Old Testament, with emphasis also upon such female figures as Eve, Sarah, Potiphar's wife, Delilah, and Esther. Great biblical characters and their narratives will be studied in the context of the art and culture of Italy, France, Germany, and the Netherlands. We will consult biblical text in relation to masterpieces of sculpture, painting, and prints, as well as objects of material culture. Two campus field trips are planned.
