This course embraces a number of strategies for understanding the complexity of Rome’s position at the heart of the Southern Baroque movement. Students in this course will look at the creation of ancient Rome and its importance as a foundation upon which the Baroque city was built, the development of a matrix of ecclesiastical, political, cultural and social developments which undergird the monumentality of the Counter-Reformation Baroque, the relationship of scientists, clerics, and politicians to the Baroque as the movement’s leaders sought out visual means for explaining the mysteries of life, and the spread and development of the Baroque across the globe to the current century.

Prerequisite(s): None.
